Chi’s Sweet Home vol 1 – This new manga from Vertical has been highly anticipated by manga fans, though anyone who loves cats and/or entertaining stories will want to read this. Chi is a kitten, who gets separated from his mother and siblings while out of a walk one day. Lost and distraught, he collapses in a park, and is found by Yohei and his mother. They take the kitten home where she sees and experiences new things in a way only a kitten can. Just don’t let the Landlady find out, because pets aren’t allowed in the apartment complex. Chi’s Sweet Home is filled with stories of Chi doing what all kittens do best; getting into trouble and being cute. The book is published left-to-right and is in full color. Cat lovers, kids, actually everyone will love to laugh at, and with, Chi as she explores her new home and gets to know her new family. No library or home should be without this title.
