When I Was a Kid 5
A charming collection of black and white drawings and handwritten narratives that depict short stories from Boey's childhood growing up in Malaysia.
This graphic novel is filled with stories of surviving school, siblings, and parents from a time when the world was seen simply as black and white. "When I Was a Kid" is dedicated to the forgotten child in all of us.
These are tales of imaginary heroes; lies that adults like to tell children; and of the dangerous mix of boredom with curiosity. Boey's stories appeal widely to anyone who might long for a more innocent time when, as little kids, we all had stories we promised never to tell our parents.
