The Journey of the Ancestors’ Gifts (The Nguyen Kids #4)

Written by Linda Trinh
Illustrated by Clayton Nguyen
Published by Annick Press, Limited

The Nguyen kids are going on vacation!

It’s their first time in Vietnam and staying in Grandma Nội’s childhood home, so they should be excited. As soon as they enter the house, though, something doesn’t feel right. Why is the door to the ancestors’ room always closed? And why can’t they connect with Grandma Nội using their gifts, the way they can at home?

The Nguyen kids are back for the fourth book, this one told in alternating perspectives, in this charming early chapter book series. An exploration of Vietnamese culture and identity through the eyes of the Nguyen siblings, with elements of the supernatural, spirituality, and social justice woven in, The Nguyen Kids “should be considered for all chapter book collections” (School Library Journal, review of Book #1).
