A collection of 19 stories including “The Second Goldfish”, about a girl in charge of caring for pets who accidentally lets a goldfish escape and wanders the city in search of a replacement, as well as “Manners en Route to School” “Being Superstitious”, and “How to Play Hide and Seek”. Characters, who are drawn in a soft style amid a meticulously-depicted nostalgically retro city, encounter extraordinary experiences in their ordinary lives.
