Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Amanda is a nine-year-old girl who has just gotten her first pet, a cute little ferret named Peach. Every day, Amanda takes good care of Peach. She feeding her pet, cuddles her, and lets her play with toys—at least that's the story from Amanda's point of view. From Peach's perspective, Amanda's hand is the Handra, a five-headed serpent that abducted Peach from the kingdom she ruled as a ferret princess. Every day, Peach yearns for freedom, even as she is forced to compete in gladiator-style tournaments against giant Barbie dolls and savage teddy bears. Will Peach be able to understand that Amanda means her no harm? And can Amanda learn that ferret princesses need to be treated with more respect? Classic pet stories meet Spartacus in this graphic novel, which manages to get its readers to sympathize with both protagonists, even as they hurt each other. Artists Lindsay Cibos and Jared Hodges create two very different worlds, from Amanda's everyday home life to Peach's humorously terrifying world where a pet cage can become a dungeon and a chew toy can transform into a formidable enemy. This is a definite winner that will encourage readers to view life from multiple perspectives. Reviewer: Michael Jung

    A reviewer

    Peach Fuzz is a good manga for younger girls who aspire of owning their own pet. Ages 10 and up may find it extremely boring. I think that if you don't want your children exposed to the pervertedness of other manga, this is a perfect choice for you and your family.I found it slightly disappointingly boring, but if you like that sort of thing, do not let my humble opinions get in your way.

    Great

    'I think it was cool. I think that the characters are really cool and that the clerk is really funny, but really greedy! And I LOVE Peach! So cute!' That is what my sister thinks of it. It's a great 'manga' for the younger ones. ^_^

    I must say, even though this book is a bit boring it was a nice read. At first I was disapointed. The artwork was fantastic, but the plotline seemed very uninteresting. But then I read what Peach saw and the story got a lot better. I mean, looking through a ferrets sight is kind of enjoyable!

    Great Book!

    This book is really cute. This book is about Amanda, a lonely little girl. Her mother means well, but doesn't have a lot of time for a 9-year-old and, after plenty of begging from Amanda, agrees to let her have a pet. Amanda chooses a ferret (and names her Peach) because ferrets aren't ordinary and neither is she! But her mom sets up Two Big Rules: 1) Amanda has to care for Peach, and 2) Peach can't ever bite Amanda. It seems like Amanda finally has the friend she's needed ... but Peach sees Amanda's hands as five-serpent monsters -- and bites in what she thinks of as self-defense. Amanda has to try to hide the fact from her mom that her new best pet is actually a biter, before her mom takes Peach away.
