by Kiyohiko Azuma.
This is a graphic novel about a little girl named Yotsuba who has green hair ponytailed into a four-leaf clover style.
What can I say? All of this series runs about the same, that is, brilliant. This is the series that reminds me of Ray when she was younger.
In this volume, Yotsuba (who I estimate to be about four, although she claims to be six at one point) learns how to use string/cup telephones (and learns how to be an e-mail, complete with attachment and emoticon), calls her grandmother, gets sick, bakes a cake, goes shopping for her dad, and goes to a ranch.
I left this volume lying around, and Ray picked it up. She squealed with laughter.
