Summary: Good for what it is.
Comment: I enjoyed it. Definitely for young girls though [which is who it's for.] I've read all the released volumes now, and the story is quite good, Federica's art is enjoyable. It truly is a manga Nancy Drew. But I enjoyed this more, as Nancy is sort of removed from my generation.

Summary: The Chase is On
Comment: In one of the many team-ups made in the race for OEL manga crown, writer Alex De Campi and artist Federica Manfredi bring you the newest crime-solving pair in this cleverly named comic. Kat Foster is an Iowa girl who enrolls in the Dover Academy, one of the most prestigious schools in New England, when her father lands a teaching job there. But while the school has its code of conduct, the student body has its own--as Kat learns the hard way. Luckily, sassy Mee-Seen "Mouse" Huang comes to Kat's rescue and the two become fast friends. But when a thief blackmails Kat's father, she and Mouse become the perfect deducting duo.

An entry in TOKYOPOP's "Manga Reader" collection, this gives out the feeling of what the manga versions of "Hardy Boys" and "Nancy Drew" would be like, assuming you've read those. On its own, "Kat & Mouse" not only delivers a good helping of the mystery element but also some heartfelt moments of teenage angst, friendship, family tensions, and even a hint of young love. Manfredi's art, while of standard mangaish fare, is also of the simple and steady kind. The one drawback is that it all makes for quite a thin paperback which, hopefully, will get thicker in future volumes. A two-page segment featured in the comic shows you how to dust for prints the way the girls do, while another segment has profiles on the real-life women who inspire Kat & Mouse.

This comic is for ages 8-12: Adult Situations.
