“Min Pu, Wei Li, wake up!”
It’s morning in turn-of-the-century Binondo—the day two brothers are sent on an errand by their parents to deliver a basket of handsewn slippers up the Pasig River. On their way home their tiny boat collides with a rock and springs a leak. What are the boys to do?
Based on a true story from old Manila, Fran Ng's prize winning retelling and Arnel Mirasol's buoyant pictures will enchant readers of all ages. Here for the whole family to enjoy is a story of the greatest adventures—moving to a new land, creating lasting family traditions, and finding good luck in unexpected places.
