What do we know about Rizal? We know he was a hero, we know he wrote a couple of bestselling books, and we know that we have a national park named after him. But way before all of that, he was a kid. Small for his age, skinny and bullied. So what happened in between? This is a book about the boy that existed before that hero happened–an awkward misfit who somehow found himself in a position of greatness. This is the story of Rizal told the Halo-halo way, and we hope it will help you get to know him a little better.
