From Wikipedia

Yotsuba goes to an udon shop without her father’s knowledge, and is allowed to watch udon being made. After getting a pizza menu in the mail, the Koiwais order a couple, though one turns out to be too much for Yotsuba to hold. After an announcement of an upcoming camping trip, Yanda arrives with various bubble-blowing devices, which they play inside, then outside, with. Yotsuba, Fuuka, and Miss Stake (Fuuka’s classmate from chapter 45) go to a shrine to pick chestnuts, and Yotsuba learns about burr covers and bug infestations. Koiwai gives Yotsuba her own camera, which she uses to go around taking pictures of people. Yotsuba meets Miura at her apartment building, and they go to Ena’s. On the way, a dog grabs her teddy bear and shakes it, making it smell like dog, so they wash it and dry it at the Ayases’. As a result, the bear’s ability to speak is broken, so Asagi offers to repair it overnight. Yotsuba spends much of the intervening time sulking about Juralumin’s absence until Yanda finally gets a reaction out of her. She goes to the Ayases’, where she finds Juralumin repaired.

My Thoughts:

I wish I had thought to include that little wiki blurb in my earlier reviews. It’s an awfully nice little thing to have to see what happened in which volume. You’d think after doing this for flipping 21 years I’d have a good handle on writing reviews.

I’m including a picture from the Pizza chapter. Pizza has always been part of my life and even now it is probably my favorite food (possibly tied with chicken potpie or Mr Mac’s specialty mac&cheese). So seeing someone see it for the first time just makes me grin. It also makes me realize just how much behavior that kids have to learn. In the next panel, not included, Yotsuba’s dad has to show her how to eat it with her hands, as she can’t figure out how she’s supposed to eat it with chopsticks, hahaha. Kids are likes sponges and soak up stuff without them realizing or even us realizing what we’re teaching them. Good food for thought.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

  1. I’m adding this to my TBR. That is a sweet scene. Lol she thought it was like fried egg.
    My cousins and I did not like pizza the first time we saw it. We thought it looked too messy. It was just too different from what we were used to. Now we love it.
