{Blog Tour} NGUMITI SI ANDOY by Xi Zuq: Excerpt Reveal + Giveaway!

(Header) Ngumiti si Andoy Blog Tour

For the last day of the blog tour, Ngumiti si Andoy makes its stop here on It’s A Wonderful Bookworld — just in time for the country’s celebration of hero Andres Bonifacio’s 150th birthday!

(Cover) Ngumiti si Andoy

About the book:

Ito ang simula ng kuwento ni Andrew na nagsimula sa kanilang Heroes Park. Gusto lamang niya na iguhit ang estatwa ni Andres Bonifacio nang matuklasan niya ang ilang lihim sa buhay ng bayani.

Sa pagdiriwang ng ika-150 kaarawan ni Andres Bonifacio, inihahandog ng Adarna House ang Ngumiti si Andoy, isang aklat tungkol sa buhay ng bayani. Batay ang kuwento at guhit ng aklat sa mga nagwagi sa 2013 Philippine Board on Books for Young People-Salanga at Alcala Prize [pbby.org.ph]. Hanapin ang Ngumiti si Andoy sa Adarna House showroom at sa pinakamalapit ng book store sa inyo.

I do think that this book will be useful for my little kid (once she learns how to read; she already loves the colors and the illustrations now) and the blurb intrigues me too. Andres Bonifacio is the hero that I’d love to know more aside from Jose Rizal and this book would definitely make studying history more interesting. 😉

  1. I momentarily paused after reading that Xi Zuq is a General like me. To be honest, I was never drawn to this type of books because it reminds me of schoolwork. As a child, I had never been a reader so when a teacher requires our class to do some reading, I know that I am doomed.

    But those illustrations are just wow!

    1. I actually decided to join the blog tour because I wanted to have the book for my little darling. (Wanted to start ’em early, ya know, hihi). And I am an Andres Bonifacio fan so the story is also interesting for me. 🙂
