Once upon a time...

Sahtu Press’s first publications were limited-edition children’s books, including Xieng Mieng and Kiwi the Green Koala. Over the years ahead, Sahtu Press will expand its list to include novels, short stories, as well as poetry. Sahtu Press looks forward to discovering and/or promoting many Lao American writers. Today, Sahtu Press is considered one of the nation’s first Lao American-owned and staffed literary publishers.

With your support we can build strong communities of storytellers, artists and leaders. Sahtu Press has been involved in many community building workshops over the years and plan to continue to do so. We love to share our knowledge and experience. Join us and we can learn and grow together.

A Sticky Mess - PDF

This is a donation item. All proceeds are tax deductible and go towards helping Sahtu Press and its mission. A young monk keeps getting in trouble with the head of the monastery who thinks the boy can’t do anything right. Finally, the young boy decides to turn the tables with the help of a chicken and a little bit of a sticky snack called mieng. What happens next has become the stuff of legend for over 600 years! This is the hilarious tale of cleverness and ingenuity for children aged four and up.
