About the Author:

Minh Quoc is an acclaimed writer of many Vietnamese folktales.

Review:

Tam and Cam shares elements of the Cinderella story while also incorporating an expanded plot reminiscent in some details of the Arabian Nights. In this case, the half sisters both die, first Tam, the Cinderella figure, at the hands of her wicked stepmother. But she then passes through a series of reincarnations until she becomes herself again and tricks Cam into having herself scalded to death. The art is somewhat stylized, but attractive. It will be especially appreciated in collections serving new immigrants and Vietnamese Americans. --School Library Journal, January 1, 2007
