    Manga for a young girl

    My daughter has gotten into comic books lately-thanks to my husband and I want to show her my world-THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF MANGA! I got her the Disney manga Kilala Princess (figured I would start with something she knows). So now that I have her hooked and she wants more does anyone have any suggestions for a 9 year old girl?

    Thanks

    I would think that 'Cardcaptor Sakura', the famous CLAMP manga series, (and the personal favorite of the CLAMP authors) would be right your alley for your needs...

    She's 9. I am open to some of the 13+ series as long as there isn't anything perverted in it. She is very intelligent and mature for her age. I let her watch the anime Kodocha and Full Moon with me and that was ok.

    Fruits Basket isn't appropriate for a 9 year old... there are topics of homosexuality, abuse, gang activity, etc.

    It's also probably not going to interest a 9 year old to read about much older students.

    I would actually follow the age ratings (or at least research the titles first), not all of them are appropriate for (or interesting to) younger children.

    I'd agree that Card Captor Sakura is a good choice. My Melody, Kirarin Revolution, Shugo Kyara, Pretty Cure, etc are all rather popular with my elementary students. I'm not sure of their liscenced status... but they might be good choices.

    Uh, Inuyasha? For a nine-year-old girl? You have any idea of how intense a nine-year-old girl's fandom for Inuyasha can be? Scary...

    Ah, Card Captor Sakura... Oh, and try introducing her to the Searching for the Full Moon manga. Oh, and Saint Tail, I have fond memories of that... I'm not sure you can find the Saint Tail manga though. But I think there's a good chance you may find the anime...

    I remember hearing a few good things about D.N.Angel, but I never really looked into it...
