Kampung Boy by Lat.
Amazing, amazing, amazing. This is a graphic novel that reveals a lost lifestyle of small villages in Malaysia. Mat recounts his life from birth to when he leaves the village to go to school. It is filled with details of rural Muslim life and brims with good humor and the grace of a simple life.
This one belongs in all graphic novel collections. It will be enjoyed by children in elementary school, but will be most appreciated by those older than that who will see the difference in the culture and life that Mat lives.
I can’t wait for the next volume!
