Product Description

Product Description

In the eighth volume of Chi's Sweet Home, Chi is growing up and now that she has a sense of her new surroundings, the little shorthair is ready to make this new neighborhood her own. With the help of her furry feline friend Cocchi she embarks on some of her more ambitious trips yet. Being a curious and increasingly self-reliant kitty, priority number one has always been locating food sources. Sometimes achieving this is not very easy or safe for kittens, but lessons have to be learned. What Chi will have to soon find out is that doors are made to be closed. Strolling into random homes, sheds or cars is a big no-no because you may never make it out again. In one such case, Chi gets in; finds what's she was not looking for; is locked in; and eventually has to face off with a grumpy old human!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chi's Outdoor Adventures 13 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback
Feel like I'm getting a bit redundant here folks, but these books are just really that good, that, fun and that cute! I simply cannot rate one lower than 4*, saving the 5* for the volumes that have me either laughing out loud or feeling all emotional about something. Chi learns he has a cool gift of landing on his feet when he falls, spends a lot of time outside with Cocchi, gets stuck up a tree, and gets locked in someones workshop. After all this hectic outside excitement he comes home to the degradation of being filthy, being given a bath, taken to the vet, given eye drops for an infection and end ups, poor guy, back ... but with a cone around his head. Hilarious! This book comes with an origami craft at the back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travels with Tomcat 19 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Blurb:
"Kittens, at one point or another, have to set fourth and explore the world. Whether it is to test their abilities or to expand their territory, a few good excursions are a must for proper feline maturation. Outdoor cats in particular need to find a place of their own where the can settle in away from the pressures of humanity. But the little shorthair is going to have to learn when exploring and scouting is taken too far. There are many dangers out there, but sometimes, as the more resourceful kitties know, for the sake of personal growth challenges must be tackled head-first."

Additional Information:
In the back of this book are a couple of pages where you can "make a chi face". It's origami fun! There's a photocopy friendly image to be folded into an adorable Chi face. Followed by instructions on the opposite page. If I were you, I would NOT cut the page out, I would take the suggestion and photocopy the page. Alternatively, you can go to [...] and scroll down to the bottom. Underneath the title "Chi's Sweet Home Origami Fun!" is an image of the finished product. Click on the completed Chi origami face to be taken to a .pdf of the image you'll need to make your very own origami Chi face, plus instructions again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for all cat-lovers 3 Dec 2012
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gee, I wonder what it would be like to be a little kitten"? Well, wonder no more. Chi's Sweet Home gives us an up-close look at the life of an adorable kitten named Chi (not to be confused with the girl from the hit manga Chobits), following her throughout her everyday life. And the funny thing is, you always know what Chi is thinking (or saying) when she meows, which really got me to thinking, "Is this how most cats think in this situation?" Who knows?

Everybody thinks the life of a pet is tedious, simple and repetitive. Well, not this cat! Chi leads the reader through the life of a cat one short story after another. Chi has all kinds of adventures in her home and in her neighborhood, whether she is alone or together with her best friend, Cocchi, a male cat with an arrogant personality. Whether it's something as simple as looking for attention from her family or looking for something to do around town, Chi is always having fun. They say cats have nine lives, but I would say Chi doesn't need them - all she needs is one, because no matter how many close calls she ends up in, cats always land on their feet, both literally and metaphorically.

Konami Kanata all-color manga is a must-read for all cat-lovers. The use of watercolor is a breath of fresh air to anyone who has been immersed on black & white manga for years. This is definitely a manga that will be loved by both children and their parents, thanks to super-cute Chi!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chi runs around town...super cute kitty manga 28 April 2014
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the eighth volume in the Chi’s Sweet Home series. Right now there are ten volumes in this series. If you have enjoyed the previous books I think you will enjoy this one as well. It is full of kitty humor and cuteness just like all of the previous books have been.

When Chi sees Yohey playing with his friends she decides to go out and track the the other kitten friend she has, Cocchi. Chi and Cocchi get into lots of trouble in this book. Chi finds out first hand how cats always land on their feet and Cocchi introduces Chi into making trouble in a shed. Chi’s adventures outside lead her to develop conjunctivitis which introduces Chi to the beloved Elizabethan Collar (wow do cats ever love those…).

I am going to be honest and say that while I still enjoy these books they are starting to loose some novelty for me. They have been somewhat less funny as Chi grows up and has to deal with real world issues (at least for a cat). Some of that might be because I have read them all back to back in a fairly short period of time. My seven year old son however, still adores these books and loves reading them a lot.

There are still some very funny things that happen in this book and I still really enjoy the lovely pastel illustrations. Chi is cute and I love watching her and Cocchi getting into trouble around the neighborhood. We see a lot less of her interaction with the Yamada family in this book and I kind of missed that.

It is kind of nice watching how both Chi and Yohey have changed as they get older.

Overall this was an entertaining installment in this series. I continue to enjoy Chi and her antics, although I found this book to be less funny than previous ones. My seven year old son still adores this series. I would recommend this manga series to those who enjoy cats and humor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cute! 7 July 2013
By Kumiko!?! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The books are in full color and the chapters are kept short, so it's like reading the weekend comics from the newspaper! The only thing I didn't like was that the book was 'flopped', meaning it's been reprinted from it's right to left format (Japanese) to a left to right one (English). It however, doesn't bother me enough that I wouldn't buy the next volume!

I bought this for my 11and 13 year olds. They are very sweet. Very sweet-even to the point of saccharine.But my kids really love it and it's nice to have them looking at and enjoying (enormously) something so innocent
