The Fox & Little Tanuki, Volume 3 (The Fox & Little Tanuki #3)

55840391. sy475

The Fox & Little Tanuki is the third volume of this lighthearted and appealing graphic series written by Mi Tagawa. Due out 23rd March 2021 from TokyoPop, it's 208 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. 

I really love anthropomorphic animals and this series is superb. The animals are well written, distinctly different in characterization and appearance and easy to keep straight in my head during the read. This is the third book in the series which has strong continuity overall; so it's best to read them in order. The narrative moves along at a good pace and it doesn't drag at all. It's action packed and engaging. 

The pages are inked in black and white and the page layout is in the classic "manga style". The publisher and author have included a how-to-read-manga tutorial page in the back of the book for western audiences. The pages are arranged like western books, with the spine facing left and the first page facing the reader.  

Four stars. This would make a good selection for public or classroom library acquisition, for manga fans, and lovers of anthropomorphic graphic novels. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
