In a village by the sea there is a family cooking dinner, waiting for the sun to set when father comes home from fishing. IN A VILLAGE BY THE SEA is a brilliantly imagined new picture book written by Muon Van and illustrated by April Chu. With beautiful illustrations and perfectly lyrical text, this is a must have picture book for families, educators, and libraries.

A culturally authentic, fantastically woven story that opens a window to another world for the reader to experience and explore. In the pages of this book, the reader is able to spend some time in the shoes of another family, one that is not so very different from their own.

Masterfully told and illustrated, IN A VILLAGE BY THE SEA is highly recommended for anyone wanting a unique picture book and a great story that shows the reader a hint of Vietnamese family life.
