Description of this Book

R to L (Japanese Style)When goofy inventor Senbei Norimaki creates a precocious robot named Arale, his masterpiece turns out to be more than he bargained for!It's a race to the finish line (and not just figuratively!) in the final volume of Dr. Slump! When Taro graduates from high school, he decides to get a job with the Penguin Village Police Department. But first he'll need to earn his driver's license--and what better test of driving skill could there be than another Penguin Grand Prix? Akira Toriyama hosts the race to send Arale and the gang off with a bang!

Author's Bio

Renowned worldwide for his playful, innovative storytelling and humorous, distinctive art style, Akira Toriyama burst onto the manga scene in 1980 with the wildly popular Dr. Slump. His hit series Dragon Ball (published in the U.S. as Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) ran from 1984 to 1995 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. He is also known for his design work on video games such as Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, Tobal No. 1 and, most recently, Blue Dragon. His recent manga works include COWA!, Kajika, Sand Land, Neko Majin, and a children's book, Toccio the Angel. He lives with his family in Japan.
