Seperated from the warmth and protection of her mother, desperately attempts to reunite with her family of feral cats. When the kitten feels all hope is lost, she is found in a park by a young boy named Yohei and his mother. After taking a ... more »tumble Yohei feels just as distraught as the kitten he sees before him, and he quickly takes comfort in feeling a sense of sympathy with the cat. And before she could even know what hit her, the little kitty was picked up and soon under the protection and care of Yohei's family--the Yamada's. Every moment of their daily life is filled with something we can all cherish.
In the third volume of Chi's Sweet Home, Chi has made a new friend. There is another cat in the neighborhood. This cat is the very cat that the building manager considers to be a nuisance and the same one with a reward on his head. The cat's name is Kuro; a giant of a feline. All black and with a bit of an appetite, this cat has been known to not only sneak into people's yards but he has even been bold enough to enter some apartments searching for food.
Chi's first encounter with Kuro back in volume two was not a positive one. When the big cat one day walked up to the Yamada's back door, Chi was startled by its size. Kuro is so big, Chi could not even tell it is also a cat! Chi thought it was some new beast altogether. So when Youhei sees the new cat he immediately panics as he tries to protect his little buddy.
Now the two cats are working together to take on the big world outside of the Yamada's apartment!« less
This is the third book in the Chis Sweet Home series. This is a wonderful manga series that is very funny and very cute. This is a wonderful series for all ages and great for those who love cats and their antics.
This is the most heart-wrenching book of the series. Chi makes a new friend in the neighbor cat Blackie, but the superintendent has finally caught up with Blackie and threatens to evict his owners. This whole event really forces the Yamada family to decide whether or not they will keep Chi or be forced to find her a new home. Yohei is absolutely devastated at the prospect of losing Chi.
While this book wasnt as hilariously funny as previous books, it was still an excellent read that my whole family really enjoyed. The illustration throughout is wonderful and I enjoyed how much the story progressed in this book too! We are really starting to see a story develop here as the Yamada family struggles with some hard decisions.
I loved the hopeful ending to the story as well. This book was very engaging, my seven year old son was on the edge of his desperately hoping that Yohei wouldnt lose his best friend, Chi. He wouldnt let me stop reading until we found out what happened!
The illustration is done in mostly pastels and is easy to follow. The illustrations are hilarious and do an excellent job of showing the emotions of the cats and people.
Overall highly recommended to cat lovers of all ages. This book had more story in it than previous books in the series and was a bit more serious and heart-wrenching. I enjoyed it and how much the story progressed. The story was all the more engaging because of the troubles the Yamadas faced. I cant wait to see what happens next!
