Format: Paperback
Domo is a brown, furry slab with arms, legs, eyes, and, as his most noticeable feature, a big, square mouth lined with pointy teeth. Like the Cookie Monster, he looks scary but is really just a friendly guy with more joie de vivre than common sense. He's like a big ol' golden retriever, jumping around with excitement and knocking everything over as he goes.

Domo is the mascot for Japan's NHK television network, and in his native country, he is featured in 30-second animated shorts between shows. This book adopts a similar format, with a series of very short stories that could easily be told in a minute or two.

Since Domo is a TV character, it's ironic that several of the stories revolve around his fascination with what he sees on screens. In the first story, he watches TV with his friend, an elderly rabbit named Mr. Usagi, and practically destroys Mr. Usagi's den as he energetically acts out the roles of a samurai, King Kong, and finally, a lethal TV chef. In another episode, he decides to be a superhero and wreaks chaos throughout the forest, and in another story, he becomes fascinated with a friend's Wii-like video game and persuades all his friends to dress up as game characters. (Not bad for a guy with a one-word vocabulary: The only word he ever says is "Domo!")

The stories are straightforward enough for young readers to follow, and the formula stays pretty much the same in each: Domo gets carried away and causes havoc, but his friends forgive him because they love him.

This manga is fun to read, the stories are hilarious and entertaining, but they are very short. Don't let the 100 page length fool you, many of the pages are just a single image that is more zoomed in than I expect from comics. Definitely a good gift for a child who will get a kick out of Domo's antics.

Hi Domo fans. You should enjoy this Manga. Domo is learning about life in his usual Domo way. Great art work and expressions. Laughter and tears whilst reading. Enjoyable for Domo fans and others who want to meet him. Previous knowledge is good to have but not essential. Enjoy, as I did!
