Yotsuba is about a small girl named, well, Yotsuba! In this book follow her as she comprehends criticism about her art, swears revenge after watching a gangster movie, and goes to buy cake! From the creator of Azumanga Daioh, Kiyohiko has done amazing work on this book. Definitely going on my favorites list, I absolutely loved Yotsuba, and am definitely going to try to find book one. I think my favorite character would have to be Jumbo, mainly because he’s hilarious and reminds me of how I think my brother as an adult would act. I’ve also read book fifteen and I’ve got to say, it’s a tie between the two for number one. It really deserves five stars.
