Written and Illustrated by Nor Sanavongsay. It is a retelling of a 500 year old story based on the famous Lao trickster, Xieng Mieng.
The book includes Nor's signature style illustrations rich with vivid colors in large scale hardcover format. Beautiful images filled with traditional characters. Folks who are familiar with the story can now pass it down to the younger generation.
The Xieng Mieng series is a fable of sorts. Lessons embed themselves in each episode. Each episode shows the way in which Xieng Mieng gets out of troubling situations; 'A Sticky Mess' being the first.
