This book is strangely entertaining. :)

It's a boys life in another country and the things going on around him. But kids are kids where ever you go and that's the central point here. It was great to watch him grow up and for as much time as it covered, I think it did a good job of making us, as readers, feel in the loop.

A great little book!

But now it's off to someone new in a trade. I'm sure they'll like it! :)

The Big Box of Trade Books arrived safely today; many thanks! The art-style on this one's a bit grotesque, but it looks amusing. It's about a young Muslim boy growing up in Malaysia in the 1950s, in a rural location that gives him plenty of room to get into trouble.

The format's interesting - it's not quite a typical graphic novel, though every page features lavish illustrations; the accompanying text is in the form of a running memoir-narrative, from the viewpoint of a much older Mat. The illustration style won me over by the time I reached the image of a tiny, scampering, nude Mat playing hide and seek all over the house with his father (who's not trying very hard to find him). It's lively and funny, and rather poignant by the end, where Mat is going away to school - and fearing that his beloved home may not always be there for him...
