Kalipay and the Tiniest Tiktik (Self-Published Book)
This beautiful, self-published children's book is a collaboration between myself (the author, designer, and publisher), and illustrator Happy Garaje. The book is soft-cover, 8x10 inches. I can sign or dedicate it on request.
Daydreaming comes easily to Kalipay, but she doesn’t know how to make bullies leave her alone. One day, she makes an unusual new friend in Gamay, who tells the school bully, Juan, to stop teasing Kalipay. Other children are afraid of Gamay—her strange tongue, split body, and bat wings—but Kalipay is fascinated by the things that make her new friend different. Together they learn how friendship can overcome differences and create happiness for everyone. This book is in English and Cebuano.

Beautiful quality and great story! I have never came upon a bilingual book in Cebuano and English, and my Cebuana mother was delighted to read this with my daughter :)
Thank you for dedicating the book. Such a wonderful story, and amazing that it's in my native language. I'm so happy that I'm able to share a part of my heritage with my niece and nephew.
I love them! Thank you so much!
