Manga Review: Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki (Hardcover)

I've finished "Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki" by Mamoru Hosoda.

When Hana falls in love with a young interloper she encounters in her college class, the last thing she expects to learn is that he is part wolf. Instead of rejecting her lover upon learning his secret, she accepts him with open arms. Soon, the couple is expecting their first child, and a cozy picture of family life unfolds. But after what seems like a mere moment of bliss to Hana, the father of her children is tragically taken from her. Life as a single mother is hard in any situation, but when your children walk a fine line between man and beast, the rules of parenting all but go out the window. With no one to turn to, how will Hana survive?

My Review:

This is a lovely Omnibus version with all the volumes of Wolf Children in one manga.  There are some notes by the author and the illustrations are beautiful.  The story begins with extra colorful illustrations and ends with them too.  It is read traditionally from back to front and right to left with most of the story told in black and white illustrations.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
