‘Asian Currents’ likes ‘Kampung Boy’

9780980607000A very nice write-up about Kampung Boy from bookseller Sally Burdon of Canberra’s excellent Asia Bookroom in Asian Currents, the Asian Studies Association of Australia’s monthly e-bulletin:

Australian publisher Wilkins Farago should be congratulated for bringing the much-loved Malaysian cartoonist Lat’s Kampung Boy to Australia. This bestselling cartoon book from Malaysia’s favourite cartoonist is a classic of the genre. Funny, warm and full of surprises, Lat’s unforgettable memoir of growing up in a small village will appeal to cartoon lovers of all ages.

Thanks, Sally!
