The illustrations are consistent with Vietnamese tradition, and they help unify the collection as a whole.
  Andrea_LaLonde | Aug 10, 2016 |
The illustrations are beautiful. They bring Vietnamese culture to life for those who are culturally or historically unaware. Very few of the stories replicate the themes we know from Aesop's fables and fairy tales. Some of the stories are inspiring, others fell flat.

Pros: Beautiful, magical illustrations bring these stories to life and engage young readers to keep listening while you read.

**Winner of Creative Child Magazine 2015 Book of the Year Award**

This colorfully illustrated multicultural children's book presents Vietnamese fairy tales and other folk stories—providing insight into a rich literary culture.


Vietnamese Children's Favorite Stories, is a charming collection of fifteen tales as told by prominent storyteller Tran Thi Minh Phuoc. In it, Tran—Minnesota's first Vietnamese librarian and an active member of the Vietnamese-American community—recounts cherished folktales such as "The Story of Tam and Cam" (the Vietnamese version of Cinderella), "The Jade Rabbit," and "The Legend of the Mai Flower." With beautiful illustrations by veteran artists Nguyen Thi Hop and Nguyen Dong, children and adults alike will be enchanted by Tran's English retellings. Stories in which integrity, hard work and a kind heart triumph over deception, laziness, and greed—as gods, peasants, kings and fools spring to life in legends of bravery and beauty, and fables about nature.

The Children's Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. Vietnamese Children's Favorite Stories will keep Vietnam's folktales alive for them and the legions of young readers who enjoy multicultural children's books and stories set in faraway lands.
