Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A Publishers Weekly Big Graphic Novels for 2010 selection!
 
 
"Chi's Sweet Home seems to have that feline je ne sais quoi that could fill a niche in the existing market." —Comics Reporter
 
 
"Chi's Sweet Home has been a fan-favorite for a while...Now American manga readers (and cat lovers) will get a chance to enjoy this wonderful manga." —About.com
Library Journal
Over several decades, artist Kanata has specialized in pet manga, with a perfect eye for rendering cats expressively and true to their playful, purring, three-dimensional counterparts. Serialized in Japan's Morning magazine since 2004, Chi's Sweet Home has finally arrived on U.S. shores. Separated from her mother and siblings, the distraught kitten Chi—a Maine Coon, perhaps, given her pattern—encounters Yohei Yamada, a little boy who has lost sight of his mother. The Yamada family reunion is swift but not so for Chi, prompting an adoption of the kitten despite a prohibition on pets in the apartment. The ensuing stories, arranged in brief, titled chapters, portray the family's growing attachment to Chi and her adventures exploring a new world. Chi's über-cute appearance and endearing acrobatics are enhanced by full-color pages and a toddler-like kitty dialect ("Evewyone went home").Verdict Chi will draw in younger manga readers and adults who are dedicated feline lovers (and owners). Teachers seeking books for reluctant readers have a compelling new series to consider.—John Gehner, Urbana Free Lib., IL

Meet the Author

Konami Kanata (pen name used by Kanata Konami) 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.

Chi's Sweet Home will be Konami's first translated work.
