A manga that's all about ferrets? How did it take me this long to find it?

I love how the book is divided between the young girls point of view as well as her ferret, Peach. It's fun to consider what our animals are thinking about and this series is the first I've seen to explore ferrets specifically. I can't wait to read more!

Amanda reaaallly wants a pet, and her mother makes the dubious decision to let her choose any animal that she wants from Super!Pets. Amanda chooses a sweet, sleepy ferret. She seems so innocent at first, but when she fully wakes up she becomes a holy terror. One of the interesting aspects of this book is that part of it is told from Amanda's perspective, and part of it is told from Peach's (the ferret's) perspective. Even though Peach's viewpoint is fictionalized (obviously), I liked that this ...more

Cute and meaningful, focusing on the responsibilities of pet ownership - passing this on to my son in hopes that he WON'T want a ferret and WILL clean out the kitten's litter box. This is probably going to backfire on me...

This would be great if the entire story was told from the ferret's POV instead of switching back and forth between the girl and her pet. I couldn't stand the little girl, she reminded me of Darla in Finding Nemo and her mom just leaves her alone with this pet to abuse. The girl constantly lies to her mom about the being bitten, doesn't tell her mom how she was rough with the ferret when they took it to the vet. I was reading this to see if I thought it would be appropriate for my daughter, who ...more

One of the better things to come out of Deviantart, while this series is highly anime-styled, it's original and definitely worth a read. It stays relatively along the lines of Hamtaro, a must read for those who like stuff like Hamtaro!

This was cute. I had a manga prompt in one of my reading challenges, so I chose this graphic novel to fill it. It was illustrated very much in the style of Japanese comics and the story about Amanda and her new pet ferret was really fun. I was a little disappointed when I started to read because the entire book was in black and white, whereas the cover was in color. I was hoping to have a full-color experience, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

I read this as part of an effort to make a list of non-violent tween graphic novels for work (now, most tween graphic novels are not exactly blood n' guts anyway, but I was specifically asked for graphic novels without a lot of fighting, etc. in them). This one fits the bill, I think, although the ferret does bite an awful lot...

I actually liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It looked like it was going to be overly cute, and it IS adorable, but it's also really funny. Nine-year-old
Peach Fuzz is an american styled manga about a young girl, named Amanda, who really wants a pet. After constantly begging her mom, she finally gets what she wants. She decides to get a ferret, because its not ordinary like all the other pets, and name her peach. There are rules for Peach, however, Amanda has to take care of her, and Peach can never bite anyone. The only problem with this is that Peach is a prissy ferret with a princess-complex, and bites out of self-defense when she sees the ...more

Amanda begs her mom for a pet...forever! Finally, mom gives in, they go to the pet store and Amanda MUST have a ferret (cooler than a dog or cat, waaay cooler than a fish!). Amanda selects a sleeping ferret--she's so sweet! and names her Peach--she's soft as peach fuzz. Little does she know that Peach is a ferret princess who will defend herself fom the evil Handra monster (Amanda's hand) by biting it every time she sees it! Will Peach and Amanda ever become friends?

Jared Hodges is a great author. In Peach Fuzz #1 it talks about a girl who really wants a pet. But she doesn't want an ordinary pet like a dog, cat, or fish. She wants a ferret. To pick out her ferret she picks them up one by one to see which of them will bite. I really loved this book. If you like animals you will to. Hailey Yarrington

So I was strolling through my local library's anime section and came across this adorable, funny, and all around good series. I especially loved this book because it helps you to really see the pets point of view that is something I really enjoyed about this. I recommend girls of all ages this book.

It was okay but its more for like 3-4 graders
and that age of people
it was good manga but it just for more younger kids
the storyline appeals to younger kids but not too young about ages 9-11 i would say

I love how this is book is in two different view were the owner of the ferret tries to have fun with it. Yet the ferret thinks it is a princess/queen that been kidnapped by a 5 headed monster(a hand). Amazingly funny!

I loved this series of books. I have ferrets and love them and loved seeing life through a ferrets eyes in this book. It made me laugh as I thought of my ferrets seeing life in that way. A fun and creative book about a little girl and her pet ferret.

This is what I end up reading when I leave the next book on my list at work and have to scrounge through my younger son's collection for something to read. :)

This was just a fun read, nice and clean. Will definitely check out the others in the series. Gotta see what happens to Peach!

Reeeeaally cute!
I don't care if this is an American based manga, it's very entertaining. I wasn't bored or anything; and it WASN'T stupid. I don't care what the judgmental haters say, it's SO worth reading.

Peach is one of the most bratty characters I have read about in a long time. At times, I found her really annoying. Without her uppity attitude, the story would have been extremely cute.
