From Publishers Weekly
The author grew up in a hamlet in the central highlands of Vietnam, and these are his stories of that childhood. PW called it "a collection of beautifully written, true stories of growing up, of earthy humorous happenings and memories. Mai's action-filled illustrations impressively evoke a land physically lost to both author and artist but very much alive in this compelling volume."
