Where is it?
Fresh off the excitement of her camping trip, Yotsuba initiates a very productive session of sandbox play in which she instructs Fuuka how to properly run a bakery. But even more exciting is a visit from Grandma! Yotsuba learns how to value and enjoy cleaning, how not to be rude when hoping for souvenirs, and most important, how to cope when Grandma leaves. But don't worry, she'll be back someday!

School Library Journal Review
Gr 5 Up-This sometimes silly graphic novel is like a Japanese version of Dennis the Menace. Yotsuba, an energetic, green-haired little girl, drives her neighbors crazy with her goofy adventures. Parents might have some concern about the single father who, at times, walks around in nothing except a T-shirt and boxers in front of teenage girls, but it's used as a comedic device with no innuendo implied. Throughout the book, there are clues as to the nature of where this wild girl comes from; at the end, readers are set up perfectly for what will happen in future series entries. The story is more like a series of episodic anecdotes with virtually no character development. While it is fun, the plot is thin, and some readers are likely to find it boring. The art focuses on the humor, and while it not very detailed or interesting, it is warm and goes well with the lighthearted plot.-Scott La Counte, Anaheim Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
