Kampung Boy by LAT

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The very wonderful beginning of a longer story about a little boy who grows up in rural Malaysia early last century. The closest bigger town is Ipoh, which is the place where my family is from, and I suspect the school the little boy leaves his village for might be the one my father went to as a kid. The drawings are special and very sweet in a non-ingratiating way. I'd love to read the rest.

Read some.
