Little Sap and Monsieur Rodin

By Northwest Asian Weekly

The wonderful thing about Little Sap and Monsieur Rodin is that it’s educational, but entertaining enough that children might not realize it. . . . The story touches on many nuggets of historical and cultural interest –it makes reference to the “Apsaras” (heavenly dancers carved on temple walls), gives a primer on the hand gestures of traditional Cambodian dance and introduces us to one of the greatest sculptors of the time period. But this book isn’t just an intellectual exercise. The illustrations are large and inviting, the exotic locations add an element of fun and Little Sap is nothing if not loveable. Overall, this is an engaging and enjoyable read for people of all ages.
