Kampung Boy and Town Boy by Lat [in Bloomsbury Review]
A delightful, joyful pair of titles about a young Muslim boy, Mat, growing up in a rural village (kampung) in 1960s Malaysia and his everyday joy of discovery and plain fun. Town Boy continues with urban adventures when Mat’s family moves to the quickly industrializing town of Ipoh to follow Mat, who has already been at boarding school there for almost a year.
