Great book. I could read it a hundred times. The illustrations are also very beautiful.
Mist-Bound: How to Glue Back Grandpa
The blend of the real world and the mythical folklore from all over Southeast Asia (and even beyond!) are portrayed with beautiful illustrations by Ellie of SillyJellie.
The combination of both Kho's clear writing and Ellie's magical artwork would delight all children and adults alike, and to have such a beautiful representation of the bond between grandparents and grandchildren was an added delight. Loved how Kho shows the bond between Alexis and her grandfather in the beginning and the contrast of Alexis's newly-found appreciation for her grandmother when her adventure into the mythical world of faeries and monsters unfolded. I think this is one of the few books that feature such a strong presence of a child's grandparents in their "journey", be it the mundane or the magical, and I really loved it.
On top of all of that, we also get wonderful representations of Southeast Asian folklore and characters. Truly an enjoyable read that I would love to pass on to my nephews & nieces.
Awesome story, well written
