More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Pet Shop of Horrors: Volume 8 continues the adventures of Count D, the proprietor of a pet shop in Chinatown that offers a number of exotic animals for sale. How exotic? Well, this volume features a mermaid, a nine-tailed fox, and a race of bunny rabbits that live on the Moon. Seekers flock to Chinatown in search of the pet of their dreams, and Count D is, as always, the perfect host. Too bad the same can't be said about Detective Orcot, the tough-as-nails homicide detective who believes Count D responsible for a rash of unsolved murders in the area. Instead of arresting the Count, Detective Orcot drops by his shop a lot, and he and the Count have formed a strange, inexplicable relationship that is one of the hidden jokes of this manga. In the first story Count D and Detective Orcot, on vacation together, meet an old sailor who has been hunting a mermaid for 50 years. In the second story, the Count sells a bickering family that can't agree on anything a pet they all love: it has a different appearance for each family member. Pet Shop of Horrors: Volume 8 is a fine addition to a well-written horror manga series. There are basically two types of stories: 1) the customer ignores the Count's instructions for his or her pet's care, and disaster ensues; 2) the pet extricates its hapless master from some terrible jam. The stories usually feature some sort of surprise or plot twist, and thus are not predictable. Unfortunately, bad language (including the F-bomb) makes this unsuitable for younger readers. Recommended for libraries with manga collections that cater to older readers. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults.2004, Tokyopop, 192p. illus., SA Ages 15 to adult.

    Petshop is one of my favorite series, ever. It's about a mysterious Chinese man who works in a pet shop that only sell love and dreams. But Leon Orcot, a street-wise Californian cop thinks the Count and his pets are just one big Mafia scam. Chris Orcot (Leons little brother) thinks that the Count's shop is really a heaven on Earth. You decide what you want to see, as you read this, one of the best mangas ever.
