The 39th Manila International Book Fair (2018) is open and booklovers are excited!
Once again, book shoppers have the opportunity to add titles to their personal
libraries and buy books to give as gifts to their loved ones.
For OMF Literature, the leading publisher and distributor of Christian books in the
Philippines, this is the time to introduce new books to readers who are looking for
inspiration, instruction, and insight.
With the theme “Turn to the Word,” OMF Lit aims to highlight the fact that all the books they publish, distribute, and import have one unifying purpose: to make people look to
God and His Word.
I was thrilled to get an invitation to attend Lampard Books Launch of one of their most popular series Moymoy Lulumboy: Ang Paghahanap Kay Inay, as the third installment hits the shelves last September 17, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center, coinciding with the 37th Manila International Book Fair.
I usually make time to go to the MIBF on a weekday because I did not want to be crushed by the large crowd of people during the weekend, but for one of the most amazing Pinoy Childern series I made this exception.
It has been year since we last heard from Moymoy, the boy “Aswang”.
In this book, Moymoy is able to save his twin brother Alangkaw and their childhood friend Hasmin, a manananggal. Having found out as well who their mother is and where she may be found, the twins embark on a mission to save her by following certain missions as bidden them by Ingkong Dakal, the guardian of the Gabun archives. Will Moymoy and Alangkaw be able to accomplish the tasks and eventually be reunited with their mother Diyosang Liliw at last?
The event was made even more special with the PETA (Philippine Educational Theater Association) book reading/ singing/ acting out the except from the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance excuse the strange video, I only got a portion before my battery gave out.
