09 TallStoryCov

The first ever Young Adult novel to win the National Children’s Book Awards. This is the special local edition of the first Young Adult novel written by a Filipina and published in London by David Fickling Books (an imprint of Random House) to resounding critical and commercial success. London’s Sunday Times describes it as “… a feel-good tale about basketball-mad Londoner Andi and her 8-foot-tall Filipino half brother Bernardo, who is reunited with his mother and sister after 16 years of waiting for the necessary papers. Making use of Philippine superstitions and legends, the novel brings magic to a down-home story of earthquakes and sibling love.” [Nicolette Jones, “Come Rain or Shine: Summer’s Best Children’s Books,” Sunday Times]
