In this third installment of the whimsical series originally published in Japan, the titular Sato continues his adventures, exploring both expansive landscapes--snowy fields, forests, oceans made of tea--and tiny microcosms of worlds, found in unlikely places--like within a freshly-baked pie In Sato's reality, which is in many ways similar to our own, seemingly commonplace occurrences are portals to new and fantastical experiences, and every object possesses an intrinsic magic and aliveness. Like all of the installments in the trilogy, this collection of vignettes reminds us to to look closely at what is small and often overlooked, and to open ourselves to wonder.
