On a night thirty years ago, a boy was sheltered in the capybara hut of a zoo. His name was ...... "Ochibi-chan," as he was called growing up by his mother who abandoned him.
The Ochibi-chan, who loves capybaras, was raised in an orphanage and given the name Kabibara Joji. He was named "Kapibara Joji". He was given the surname "Kapibara" at his own request because he loves capybaras.
Thirty years later, as a kind-hearted adult, he works as a janitor at the zoo where he was sheltered, and also as a janitor at the elementary school next door.
Kabihara Jyoji is affectionately called "Kappy" by the children, but he is also teased by them at times. ...... because he is not only an expert in reading Chinese characters, but also in reading and writing kanji, and he has a strong sense of humor.
He is not able to read Kanji characters, do calculations such as addition and subtraction, or read the air, because his mind is still the same as it was when he was five years old. Because his mind is still the same as when he was five years old.
But like a real capybara, he is very kind-hearted.
He shares his love endlessly with students, teachers, and parents, just as he shares thousands of fires from a single torch, but the torch's fire is never extinguished.
The word "quid pro quo" does not exist in his inner dictionary.
He shines his light on the darkness in the hearts of those involved and reveals the true path that should be taken for each of them.
One day, however, Kappy becomes the target of "bullying" to the point where he feels his life is in danger.
Furthermore, when he meets a yakuza, he finds himself involved in a murder case? What is love? What is family? What is true justice?
This book is a touching entertainment story that teaches the most important things in life through Kappy, who has a pure heart.
