    "There are anime and manga for kids today, but Pokemon still has its place. Even if you are adult, you may still want to look at some of the volumes. Pokemon is getting old but it is getting better."

    "This is a strange, but fun manga series. My kids loved it. Lots of cute, absurd little things with stories that are interesting but simple enough for young minds. Very unique as well, you definitely won't find anything like this in American comic books."

    "My daughter loves these books. She can sit in her room or in the reading room and read them for hours. She loves the storyline as each is different and loves the characters in them. There are a lot of similarities between American and Japanese culture in terms of these books and its characters which I find interesting. In addition, this book offers a good take on social and political issues but doesn't make it complicated for a young mind. These books are offered a great price as well and are always received in great condition. "

    "Some of Miyazaki's finest hand-drawn fantasy artwork is in this book. I bought it for a 6-year-old friend; he was entranced by the pictures. As noted elsewhere, the story, a simple tale of evil and redemption, bears no resemblance to the much later "Princess Mononoke" movie. For those familiar with Miyazaki's films, it's fun to spot the appearance of several archetypal characters he recreated again and again in various settings. For instance, the cat seen on the cover and in other pictures facially resembles the Cat Bus in My Neighbor Totoro. The illustrations are five-star, but I rated the book four stars for a couple of technical issues: the color reproduction on some pages is too pale, and the english text occasionally has vocabulary that will need to be interpreted by adults for children who can otherwise easily follow the story"
