That back cover also says it's meant to be read by middle graders of elementary school & up. lol
I'm sure it will still be challenging for me but I'm going to do my best to read it! The best part about reading is that you can read things over and over again, so even if someone new to the language struggles the first time through, it's still a good learning tool. :)

Yeah, such children's books are good for learners of the language, & the furigana also muchly helps for Westerners. :)

A children's book about Sailor Moon will be released on the 23rd! It seems to be an adaptation of the first volume of the manga and the price is 650 yen.

Here's the cover:



And here's the description translated into English (courtesy of Google Translate):

The children’s novel adaptation of Sailor Moon will finally be released in bookstores throughout Japan on Saturday, June 23, 2018! The story of Sailor Moon was completely novelized by Professor Miyoko Ikeda of “Saijyo Navi Luna.” The title can be read as “Sailor Moon vol 1, The Chosen Guardian.” Published by Blue Bird Paperback as “Sailor Moon 1, Selected Warrior”

I'm guessing if it's for children, they've softened it up a bit from the manga version. It might be cute and neat! I wonder if new art is being drawn by Naoko Takeushi, or what exactly.

But I do agree Sailor Moon feels more adult (or older teenager) oriented in most of it's iterations.
