This Is Tet Book
From the city to the countryside, discover the Tet traditions of Vietnamese families during New Year celebrations. During the 2019 Tet Holiday, illustrator Mai and author Tam spent their time photographing and capturing their family’s activities, especially the emotions of Tam’s two year old daughter, a typical city child experiencing her first traditional Tet. The character designs were based on Tam’s family. They are a classical Vietnamese family of four generations. Mai used the pictures from the 1990s of the Northern Vietnamese hometown and her childhood memories of Tet for the setting of the book.
