Ask Manga Mom – Peach Fuzz Edition

Jay Karlson writes:

First, a comment: THANK YOU for adding an “All Ages” section. My 8 year old daughter loves Manga, but they can get really dirty.

Would she like “Peach Fuzz”? She already has read Sugar Princess and Cardcaptor Sakura. She LOVED Suihilibe.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the words of encouragement Jay!  I found it frustrating trying to find appropriate manga for my girls, so I decided to make the page myself!  Though I do have to update it for all the new titles coming out lately.  But, that’s a good thing!

Peach Fuzz, one of the first OEL manga Tokyopop published, is definitely written for a girl about your daughter’s age.  Amanda, the lead character is in the 4th grade.  Her new pet, Peach the ferret, thinks she is a princess, royalty among ferrets.  Most of the conflicts come from Amanda and Peach learning to get along and live with each other.  I think it’s definitely something an 8 year old girl would like, and a parent would have no problem with their daughter reading.

If you’re still not sure though, you and she can go here to read the first three chapters of the first volume.  The Tokyopop Manga Viewer is easy to use, and it’s free.  You don’t have to join the website to use it.

Thanks for the question.  I hope this helps!

  1. Manga Mom,

    Based on your advice, I got Amy the Peach Fuzz manga and she absolutely ADORED them. She now wants to grow up to be a Manga author and illustrator!

    Thanks again.
