Author and illustrator: Satoshi Kitamura

A child’s walk through a multi-ethnic market is full of surprises - until he has a mishap. Japanese artist Satoshi, influenced by London’s Borough Market and James Berry’s sartorial style, experiments with body language, perspectives and directions. Cinematographic vibes connect the reader with the brightly-clad boy’s story of self-discovery.
