Kampung Boy, Lat’s wonderful cartoon memoir about growing up in a Malaysian village, is featured in the latest edition of the New South Wales Department of Education English ebulletin for grades 7 to 12.
The ebulletin features great information on how this classic can be used in the classroom. Here’s a summary:
A brilliant autobiographical graphic novel, it is a fabulous book for Stage 4. It would work brilliantly for representing the self, narrative voice, representation and intercultural understanding.
