How else can you illustrate a classic Filipino rhyme? This very fresh and so-current paper cut illustrations by Pergy Acuna is a funny take. I'm pretty sure Bahay Kubo (Straw Hut), published by Adarna House, will be a cult classic for kids today, as the popular rhyme is for every generations.
The scenes are whimsical and anthropomorphizes veggies—kids will definitely never see them the same way again. The illustrator smartly created her own simple, single scene visual narratives.
This is the best and funniest scenes for me. How about a crying tomato and onion for a pizza party? It's modern and very clever! LOL.
There are more visual puns spread throughout in this small but thick book, perfect for small readers. Like me, they will surely enjoy the illustration details and scenes, and will crave for more!
