Quang & Lien – Girl Giant and the Monkey King

‘Girl Giant and the Monkey King’ illustrated by Quang & Lien is a fantastic tale packed with magic, adventure, and middle-school woes.

The story focuses on Thom Ngo, a 12-year-old Vietnamese girl who is in high school in America. She sets out on a journey through Vietnamese folklore and mythology while simultaneously juggling school life and her relationship with her mother.

Containing themes of racism, belonging, identity, and inter-generational differences, this captivating fantasy tale is available from Roaring Brook Press / Macmillan from November.
