Ngumiti Si Andoy–Excerpt Reveal

Since this year marks the 150th death anniversary of one of the Philippine’s heroes, Gat Andres Bonifacio, it is but fitting that a book is released in his honor. So, I want to present to you “NGUMITI SI ANDOY” (ANDOY SMILED), a children’s book based on the life of Andres Bonifacio, written by Xi Zuq and illustrated by Dominic Agsaway. This book won at the 2013 PBBY Salanga and Alcala Prize for best story and illustrations.

Title: Ngumiti si Andoy (Andoy Smiled)
Author: Xi Zuq
Illustrator: Dominic Agsaway

Ngumiti si Andoy. Ito ang simula ng kuwento ni Andrew na nagsimula sa kanilang Heroes Park. Gusto lamang niya na iguhit ang estatwa ni Andres Bonifacio nang matuklasan niya ang ilang lihim sa buhay ng bayani.
Sa pagdiriwang ng ika-150 kaarawan ni Andres Bonifacio, inihahandog ng Adarna House ang Ngumiti si Andoy, isang aklat tungkol sa buhay ng bayani. Batay ang kuwento at guhit ng aklat sa mga nagwagi sa 2013 Philippine Board on Books for Young People-Salanga at Alcala Prize [pbby.org.ph]. Hanapin ang Ngumiti si Andoy sa Adarna House showroom at sa pinakamalapit ng book store sa inyo.
