    littlebearries: By the same creator, the characters in this story are older... but just as cute.

    Bunny Drop, Vol. 1 by Yumi Unita (keristars)
    keristars: Both of these are about a 5-year-old girl who has been taken in by an unmarried young man. They each use humor and the illustrative medium to great effect, though Usagi Drop has a more serious tone than Yotsuba&! - this difference is primarily because one series is more concerned with the adoptive father's story (Usagi Drop), while the other is more concerned with the little girl (Yostuba&!).… (more)

SUMMARY: Yotsuba, a young girl with green hair, moves into a new house with her dad. Her adventures in this book include meeting the next-door neighbors, eating ice cream, and playing!

REVIEW: Yotsuba is an adorable little girl who believes that the world exists for her to explore. I think that all children can relate to this book, especially those with younger siblings around Yotsuba's age (which is four-five years old). This is a very fun and lighthearted story, and though it is originally in Japanese, it is fully translated for English-speakers to enjoy. The book is definitely for older kids, one of the main reasons being that it is a traditional Japanese comic book and is therefore read from right to left. However, once children get used to reading this book, they will find the text easy to understand, and the pictures enjoyable (as well as helpful for understanding some of the Japanese traditions/customs presented throughout the book). This book also touches on themes from simple (the desire children have for playtime) to complex (global warming), but all of this is handled more or less through the eyes of a young child. I believe that children will enjoy this fun, picture-filled book about a little green-haired girl. ( )

Ella has been giggling at these for over a year now, so I thought I'd give them a try. I mean, she (and her younger sister) were right about the Bone books: I *do* like them. Turns out that she's right about these too: they're sweet, charming and entertaining.

Yotsuba is 5 years old and she has green hair; she locks herself in the bathroom, goes hunting for cicadas (it's a catch-and-release program, never fear), hangs out with the neighbour girls, learns about doorbells and air conditioners and escalators. The humour comes from the discrepancy between the way that Yotsuba sees the world and the way it actually is, but the overall appeal is rooted in the fact that the relationships are believable and the reader wants to spend time in the company of these characters.

Warning: you will not be able to stop reading this manga! Yotsuba&! is the high-energy, ridiculously-cute-but-not-cutesy adventures of a little girl and her dad who have just moved to the city. It's a fun and extremely light read with really excellent dialogue and art. Reminded me a lot of the Ramona Quimby books, although it's obviously for a slightly older audience. ( )

A fun series by the creator/artist/writer of Azumanga Daioh. Better than the previous ADV Manga translation. ( )

Haiku summary

From the nutty mind of Kyohiko Azuma, creator of the hit manga Azumanga Daioh comes the story of the new kid in town - little Yotsuba, a green-haired and wide-eyed girl who doesn't have a clue about anything! With no knowledge of the world around her, and an unnatural fear of air conditioners, Yotsuba has her new neighbors' heads spinning. Join the hilarious exploits of an out-of-this-world schoolgirl as her befuddled friends attempt to uncover the secrets behind this strange child in Yotsubato!… (more)
