Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Nine-year-old Noboru Yamada is a responsible boy; he does the right thing and recycles his plastic orange juice bottle. What he doesn't plan on is the bottle coming back to him as Pet, a super-robot programmed to help Noboru as thanks for recycling him. While having a robot to help you out may be every little boy's dream, life with Pet is anything but easy. Determined to help Noboru, Pet means well but frequently causes harmless confusion even when doing the simplest of tasks. Pet is determined to repay Noboru sooner or later, and with an army of super-robot friends, such as his sister Alu and assistant Plaz, they can save the day whenever Noboru calls. Part of the Viz Kids line, Leave It to Pet is fun; the stories are short and punchy and the art is young and cool. Interwoven also are elements of responsibility: Noboru cleans his room, recycles and is polite to his mother, balancing action and humor with teaching kids a lesson. (May)
