Description - My Chinatown by Kam Mak
My Chinatown is a critically acclaimed, spectacularly illustrated picture book homage to family, culture, and a childhood spent in one of the most striking places in any city--Chinatown. 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. My Chinatown explores a boy's first year in the United States--after emigrating from China--as he grows to love his new home in Chinatown through food, games, and the people surrounding him. Through Kam Mak's spare verse and richly detailed artwork, the streets of Chinatown come vividly alive. Chinatown--a place of dragons and dreams; fireflies and memoriesChinatown--full of wonder and magic; fireworks on New Year's Day and a delicious smell on every cornerChinatown--where every day brings something familiar and something wondrously new to a small boyChinatown--home?
