Mummy's hometown

Lim, Hope2022
Books
A young boy loves listening to his mother describe the place where she grew up, a world of tall mountains and friends splashing together in the river. Mummy's stories have let the boy visit her homeland in his thoughts and dreams, and now he's old enough to travel with her to see it for himself. But when mother and son arrive, the town is not as he imagined. Skyscrapers block the mountains, and crowds hurry past. The boy feels like an outsider - until they visit the river where his mother used to play, and he sees that the spirit and happiness of those days remain. Sensitively pitched to a child's-eye view, this vivid story honours the immigrant experience and the timeless bond between parent and child, past and present.
