First released in 2015, From Manila With Love tells the story of a young girl who accompanies her Filipino mother to Manila for the first time. Readers will be charmed by her delightful, unexpected discoveries—from arriving in a sticky-hot airport to meeting relatives face-to-face to sitting down to a splendid table of native dishes and—best of all, meeting the grandmother who has loved her through years of letter-writing and sending pasalubongs. Told in rhyming verse accompanied by picturesque illustrations, it is a story that tenderly captures the incomparable joy of the balikbayan experience. Its brand new 32-page edition now comes with a glossary and translation in Filipino.
