I will admit that I'm a sucker for anything cute. So when I saw the cute cover art of Amanda and Peach the ferret, I had to pick it up. Needless to say I was not disappointed.

Amanda's a bit of a loner in her elementary school class. She decides that having an unusual pet may help her make more friends. A cute little ferret at the pet store seems like the ticket. Her mom warns her that if the animal bites, it's back to the pet store. The ferret, which Amanda names Peach, seems docile enough at the store, but on the way back home, she starts biting Amanda's hand...

But wait. Peach was the princess of her kingdom where the other ferrets bowed before her. But one day she was abducted from her castle by the Handra, a vicious five-headed reptile, and thrust into a dungeon and forced to do battle against nasty beasts in a brutal gladiatorial contest!

The interesting thing here is how the point of view changes from Amanda's to Peach's and how ordinary things like human hands and stuffed animals seem like fearsome monsters in the eyes of a small rodent. Peach's prissy attitude is also captured well. Meanwhile Amanda's mom is worrying about the cost of keeping Peach fed, as well as the animal's unpredictable behavior.

There's also interesting facts about ferrets presented here, like how they sleep for long periods of time and can almost seem dead during their slumber. Also, when they're young, ferrets are carried around by their mothers by grabbing the back of their necks gently with their teeth.

The artwork is very cute and very well done, and the story can be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers. It's kid-appropriate (except for the ads in the back for some not-so-kid-friendly manga) but can be enjoyed by all ages for a cute, light-hearted read. Note that the cover of copies ordered through Amazon are no longer peach-scented. But that shouldn't stop you from picking up a copy and enjoying it, though!

This is one of the more original graphic novels I've read in a while. The art is excellent. The lineart is crisp and panels are easy to read and navigate. The writing is witty- I laughed out loud quite a few times when I was reading this, especially during the parts where you see the world from Peach's point of view. I'm looking forward to buying Volume 2!

I am owned by 6 ferrets and this book is so cute and a funny version of how our fuzzy babies must see us. Highly recommended!

My 5-yr-old fell in love with this book at the library and was so into it we had to buy it.
It's a very lively, fun story to read together with a young child. The perfect way to make a kid realize that reading opens a whole new world of possibilities !
I would recommend it.

Anyone on the lookout for a sweet-natured kid's graphic novel ought to pick up Peach Fuzz. This adorable three-volume OEL manga series is a lighthearted read for any age and would be a great addition to libraries for young readers.

Two characters dominate the series: fourth-grade Amanda and her ferret, Peach. Amanda has been begging for a pet and falls in love with a soft baby ferret, who nevertheless has an attitude. Sometimes the story is told from Peach's point-of-view. This fluffy little critter is convinced she's a princess and the universe revolves around her. Seen from her eyes, Amanda's bedroom is a kingdom and the water feeder in the ferret cage is a trickle of water from a dungeon wall. Peach calls human hands "handras," referencing a monster called the hydra, and views fingertips as scaly reptilian monsters with no clear agenda except to grab at her. It does make one wonder exactly what pets are thinking, and Peach's thought processes are revealed in a cute, unique fashion.

Peach Fuzz has a fun cast of characters, also giving the story added appeal. There's Amanda's mother, a hard-working single mom aggravated about spending so much money for her daughter's pet (but always successfully talked into it), who sometimes slips off into romance novel fantasies. There's the hip, multiple-pierced pet-store worker, who has a different animal on his shoulder each time we see him and who threatens to call the ASPCA if someone tries to buy a cage too small for their animal. There are even the various ferrets we're introduced to, besides Peach, because they all have separate and distinct personalities. Toys and stuffed animals are made as semi-characters; while they don't talk, they still get ordered around by Princess Peach.

Because of Amanda's age and the typical age-related stuff she suffers (trying to be cool in school, being harassed by bullies), Peach Fuzz can easily pull in elementary-school readers. However, it can pull in just about any age, thanks to its charm and humor. There are a few jokes aimed more for adults, like when Amanda tries to fathom what "fixing" an animal means, and believes some ferrets must be "broken" to need fixing. There's basically something for everyone here.

Young readers, old readers, and everyone in-between can take note: Peach Fuzz is a cute and warmhearted series with plenty of laughs. There is one warning attached: It'll almost definitely make you want to go out and buy a ferret! But that may or may not be a bad thing...as long as parents make sure their children, unlike Amanda and her friends, know how to hold and care for it right. All animals deserve kind and enlightened treatment, especially if they're princesses like Peach.
