(W) Redila, Bong
StockID: 42042 SKU: APR221470

A haunting- nostalgic collection of short comics that is at once an homage to childhood and a simple wish that tomorrow everything will be fine. Welcome to Meläg- an eerily fantastic town located somewhere between dreamland and the real world of Bong Redila's childhood hometown in the Philippines and where love- joy- and heartbreak hold hands. Travel on a train with singing- blob-like beings- spy a shack that floats above the treetops because of a 'borrowed' magical broomstick- romp with futuristic creatures on a playdate- roam a carnival with two goofy boys- dance the father-daughter dance at a wedding with a robot- and cry with two lost souls who come together as friends in the rain. Originally published in the Philippines- where it is an award-winning bestseller- Meläg: Town of Fables marks the English language debut of Filipino American illustrator and author B. Redila. Drawn in a spidery- cross-hatched pen-and-ink style reminiscent of Edward Gorey- this charming collection will transport readers of all ages.
