This was another adorable volume in the Chi’s Sweet Home series. This is a great series that is cute and funny and wonderful for all ages of readers.
Chi has settled into her new home and is now starting to explore around. She meets a number of new cats, including Cocchi who is the first kitten around her age she has ever known. Chi is starting to realize that a cat is something different and separate from the people she lives with.
This book is full of hilarity and cuteness just like all of the rest. Chi learns about vacuum cleaners and how to push things down stairs. The Yamada family learns about cat-proofing the house. Many of these scenes had my whole family laughing out loud.
We see a new less warm and fuzzy side to Chi in this book as well, Cocchi is kind of a bratty, angry cat. Chi has moments of anger too and is not always happy and cute. Okay, well she is still pretty cute when she’s angry….
The illustration is wonderful just like with the previous installments. Both cat and human emotion is portrayed well.
This is one of my 7 year old son’s favorite series to read still. At night before he goes to bed he always comes bouncing into the room with the latest Chi’s Sweet Home book, “Can we read Chi tonight? Can we!?”
Overall another wonderfully hilarious and cute Chi book. My whole family really enjoys these. I would definitely recommend this whole series to cat lovers of all ages.
