Description
A fantasy story for kids featuring a girl named Melmo, who can change her age as she wishes by eating special candies.

Melmo's mother dies in a traffic accident, leaving young Melmo and her younger brother Totoo. Anxious, Melmo's mother in heaven asks God to prepare some magical candies, and hands them to Melmo.
There are two kinds: Melmo can grow 10 years older to become any sort of adult she wishes by eating a blue candy. By eating a red one, she can become 10 years younger.

Using these miracle candies, Melmo disguises herself as a nurse, schoolteacher, policewoman, and overcomes troubles together with her brother, Totoo.

The story of this manga is not the best as I thought it was suppose to be to be at the beginning. (I thought it was a okay at that time). What is weird is that she never runs out of those miracle candies. I've lost interest in reading the story as there are too many adventures (in which they are simple and short) and they appear to be very redundant as each adventure Melmo gets into has to feature someone growing up into an adult or a kid and vice versa. Still, I forced myself to read the entire manga.

I am not fond of the artwork, but I guess it helps out with the story.
