9781942993438: FukuFuku: Kitten Tales, 1 (Chi's Sweet Home)

The New York Times bestselling cartoonist Konami Kanata returns with another delightful collection of all-ages cat comics that feature the feline superstar FukuFuku. A stray kitten, FukuFuku has been adopted into the home of a widowed grandmother, and the two develop a close relationship--all told from the kitten's point of view. Related in eighteen scenarios as a flashback to the kittenhood days of the now-adult FukuFuku, these vignettes will charm readers young and old as they watch this fun-loving, trouble-making feline grow into a lazy and almost cynical pet, but one that expresses its love and devotion as only a pampered house cat can.

About the Author:

Konami Kanata was born on July 3, 1958, in Nagano, Japan.  A veteran manga artist Konami made her professional debut in 1982 with the serialized comic Petit Cat Jam-Jam for Kodansha's semenal shoujo manga magazine NakaYoshi. The daughter of an elementary school teacher, most of Konami's stories are for readers of all ages making her one of the most accessible artists in recent history.

In her nearly thirty year career, Konami has penned more than a dozen comic series, with the majority of them focusing on cats and pets. Konami is well regarded within the pet-manga community for her keen sense of cat ecology. Her ability to observe and render feline behavior has earned her respect from the Japanese manga community as a whole. While most of her properties were published for a younger female demographic, her most recent series Chi's Sweet Home is currently being published by Kodansha's Morning magazine, Japan's leading comic magazine for adult readers. Proving that quality can be found even in the cutest of sources.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3 Up—Hilarity ensues when an affectionate cat owner and her adorable cat reminisce about the feline's kitten days. Readers will be thoroughly charmed by watching FukuFuku's antics, told through a variety of sketches. The owner, a sweet woman, just wants to befriend her kitten. FukuFuku, on the other hand, is initially terrified by her owner's attention. She slowly relaxes, flourishing in her new environment while discovering how wonderful it is to have an owner, especially when it is time for belly rubs. Readers will be delighted by this new series. Fans of the author's Chi's Sweet Home will appreciate the warm, sweet tone. The cute black-and-white illustrations are the focal point of each page. Konami draws exquisite, detailed expressions on both kitten and human. The spare sentences will engage struggling readers, while helping develop abstract thinking and story sequencing. VERDICT Readers and pet owners will find this slice-of-life novel endearing. Offer this one to fans of Ashley Spires's Binky the Space Cat, Nick Bruel's "Bad Kitty" books, Patrick Jennings's Hissy Fitz, and Kiyohiko Azuma Yostuba&!—Jessica Bratt, Grand Rapids Public Library, Grand Rapids, MI
