With a strong Japanese flavor this 56 page mini is a delightfully playful read. The stories and sketches included within its brightly colored cover range from one bizarre creature attacking another to a child intently watching a stick of butter. I don't know why the child is doing this, but he/she does so for quite a long time.

Drawing wise most of the material is in a clear and simple cartoon style, slightly Manga in appearance but nothing too stylized. A few panels show some rough edges but for the most part it is pleasing to the eye.

In a Word: Cute.
