Book Description from the Front Cover Flap

CHINATOWN - a place of dragons
and dreams; fireflies
and memories

CHINATOWN - full of wonder
and magic; fireworks
on New Year's Day and a delicious
smell on every corner

CHINATOWN - where every day
brings something wondrously new
to a small boy


KAM MAK grew up in a place
of two cultures, one existing
within the other. Using
extraordinarily beautiful
paintings and moving poems,
he shares a year of growing up
in this small city within a city,
which is called Chinatown.
