In this installment, Yotsuba gets back from her camping trip in the previous volume, giving her neighbors odd souvenirs, before being surprised by a visit from her grandma. And in the three days that Granny stays over, Yotsuba learns all about how to cook, clean, not be greedy, and take sad goodbyes with dignity.
While it still remains unclear as to where Yotsuba came from, and how she was adopted, we do learn quite a deal about her family via her grandmother, who, up until this point, was only mentioned, but never seen. Though age has given her a sour-looking face, her heart is anything but, and through her clever wordplay and patience, she's able to impart a few life lessons on her granddaughter. who treats Granny's visit like a presidential event. (Not to mention we also FINALLY learn her dad's first name,)
In short, this is another cute installment in the series, that arguably gives us the most background info on the main characters, and it makes me hope and wonder what antics that Yotsuba will get into next.
It's been a long time since the last translated Yotsuba&! manga has come out in the US. I'm so glad this series is still being made. Yotsuba is a ray of sunshine in my life, even though she gets a little cloudy sometimes.
You'll enjoy this latest volume, new and old fans.
There is never enough Yotsuba in the world. Never. I will never grow tired of it.
We start with Yotsuba coming from camping, with souvenirs for everyone. And then we meet Grandma. There’s lots of adorableness to be had here. There’s preparation and excitement, and then Grandma teaches Yotsuba all kinds of things. Like cleaning, as Grandma pesters her father about it all. Yotsuba tries very hard to be a good helper, and she’s so cute.
There’s also a learning moment, when Grandma has to leave. Yotsuba throws a fit, but Grandma and her dad stay strong, they don’t give in, and she’s forced to accept it. And say goodbye, and then be a kid again and move forward.
Every volume of this series is a delight and I love it all to pieces. I will always want more, but re-reads are also very fun.

Although the book is recommended for ages 8 - 12, parents will enjoy reading these books too. It's hard to read them and not see some of your own child in Yotsuba.
As with all of the rest, Yotsuba&! 13 is a delight!
