it was amazing

I save Yotsubato for when I'm having a really bad day, when depression and sadness overwhelm me. A single chapter makes me smile and giggle, and makes the world a much better place. It's difficult to explain to people who haven't read it why the adventures of a little American adoptee moving from rural Japan to the city with her slacker Daddy, living next door to three older girls of varying ages, is so entrancing, but Yotsubato is warm, loving, and very very funny.

Yotsuba herself is almost too cute to bear, and the presentation of her little-girl perspective, leavened by the adult perspectives around her, is just perfect. The art, too, is both simple and beautiful. It's like sunlight on the printed page. I can't say enough good about Yotsubato!
