Kampung Boy ‘excellent’: Reading Time

'Delightful ... witty ... endearing ... excellent'

Lat’s Kampung Boy is also reviewed in the current edition of Reading Time, the Children’s Book Council of Australia‘s official journal. Here’s an excerpt:

Kampung Boy is an informative and eadearing graphic novel, giving a delightful account of the life of Mat, a Muslim boy growing up in rural Malaysia in the 1950s. Accompanied by witty, expressive cartoons, the book gives a unique perspective on the culture of the time in a lighthearted way … could be used as part of Asian cultural studies and as an excellent example of cartooning.

The review goes on to remind readers about the extensive teachers’ notes we produce for all our kids’ books, which you can find here. They’re useful for parents too.
