Product Description

The stories have a simple, engaging sweep to them, but their weighty subjects — shame, racism, and friendship — receive thoughtful, powerful examination.This much-anticipated, affecting store about growing up different is more than just the story of a Chinese-American childhood: it's a fable for every kid born into a body and a life they wished they could escape.The art blends the clean lines of anime with a bold American palette. Yang is equally adept at depicting a high school cafeteria and the Monkey King's fantastical realm.American Born Chinese is an important story about race, shame and friendship. Now a major Disney + series starring Michelle Yeoh.

Now a hit TV show on Disney + starring Michelle Yeoh! A tour-de-force by New York Times bestselling creator Gene Yang, American Born Chinese is a groundbreaking graphic novel about race, friendship and the American Dream, with full-colour artwork.

All Jin Wang wants is to fit in. But when his family moves to a new neighbourhood, he suddenly finds that he's the only Chinese-American student at his school . . .

Born to rule over all the monkeys in the world, the story of the Monkey King is one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables . . .

Chin-Kee is the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, and he's ruining his cousin Danny's life . . .

These three apparently unrelated tales come together with an unexpected twist, combining unlikely friendships and Chinese mythology in a modern fable that is hilarious, poignant, and action-packed. American Born Chinese is an amazing ride, all the way up to the astonishing climax.

Don't miss Lunar New Year Love Story, Gene's heartwarming YA graphic novel, created with LeUyen Pham, about fate, family and falling in love.

Gene Luen Yang writes, and sometimes draws, comic books and graphic novels.
