Viet Thanh Nguyen & Ellison Nguyen (especially for younger readers!)

What is sure to be a delightful bit of storytelling is this session by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen and aspiring, five-year-old author Ellison Nguyen. They provide the words and story to the illustrations by Caldecott Honor winner Thi Bui and aspiring thirteen-year-old artist Hien Bui-Stafford that have resulted in the wonderful new children’s book, Chicken of the Sea (McSweeney’s). This is a story of a pirate ship and of chickens, about chickens, maybe for they who might be chickens, all of it adventurous - and fun. This should be some serious New Year’s enjoyment for all.
