9780064437325: My Chinatown: One Year in Poems

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 familiar and something wondrously new to a small boy

Chinatown—home?

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.
