This is the 11th book in the Chi’s Sweet Home series. It was very cute and funny, with lots here for cat lovers. It’s a great manga for all ages as well.
When Yohey and Mrs. Yamada leave for a trip Chi is distressed. Cocchi is convinced that the two humans have been taken to a different home which totally stresses Chi out. Additional stress is put on the family when Mr. Yamada finds out his job is relocating to Paris. All of this builds to a meeting between Chi and her mother.
Chi has a lot of angst in this book, she is worried that Yohey and Mrs. Yamada have been sent to another family. She does a lot of thinking about family and what that means. This leads to some very funny scenes when Yohey and Mrs. Yamada return and Chi won’t let them out of her sight.
There also continue to be a number of near misses where Chi almost meets her mother. Then at the very end of the book she finally does…it’s a horrible cliffhanger that we will have to wait a whole year to see the answer too! I am dying to know what happens.
I am also very curious as to what will happen with the Yamada family if they move to Paris.
This continues to be a very cute and fun manga series. My seven year old son adores these books and me and my husband enjoy them as well. The last few books have had more drama than humor. However, I do really enjoy how the storyline has been moving forward.
Overall another wonderful installment in the Chi’s Sweet Home series. This is a great manga for cat lovers of all ages. It is very cute and fun and highly recommended.
