Vietnamese Children's Favorite Stories is a charming collection of fifteen tales beloved by Vietnamese children for generations.
Experienced storyteller Tran Thi Minh Phuoc vividly recounts such favorites as the story of Tam and Cam (the Vietnamese version of Cinderella), the legend of the Jade Rabbit, the legend of the Mai Flower, and many others. Children and adults alike will be enchanted by the legends of bravery and beauty, fables about nature, and stories in which integrity, hard work and a kind heart triumph over deception, laziness and greed.
Gods, peasants, kings and fools spring to life to celebrate Vietnam's rich cultural heritage, forging bonds with people around the world, and bringing us all together in ways that only great stories can do. The beautiful illustrations are by veteran artists Thi Hop Nguyen and Dong Nguyen, whose work perfectly captures the charm and flavor of traditional Vietnamese culture.
