Quang & Lien: My First Day

We’re delighted that ‘My First Journey’ has been adapted and published worldwide (excluding Asia) by Make Me a World (Penguin Random House US) under the title ‘My First Day’.

A visually stunning story of resilience and determination by an award-winning author-illustrator team, Phung Nguyen Quang & Huynh Kim Lien.

This is no ordinary first journey. The rainy season has come to the Mekong Delta, and An, a young Vietnamese boy, sets out alone in a wooden boat wearing a little backpack and armed only with a single oar. On the way, he is confronted by giant crested waves, heavy rainfall and eerie forests where fear takes hold of him. Although daunted by the dark unknown, An realizes that he is not alone and continues to paddle. He knows it will all be worth it when he reaches his destination.
