Picture Dictionary

Tha Thao spent a year working on this beginner's dictionary, doing nearly every aspect of the work himself except the actual printing. He selected 500 easy words, drew 500 pictures to illustrate them, and wrote a sentence for many. Then, through Big Brother Mouse, he learned desktop publishing skills to put them into a book. With humorous drawings and many repeated motifs, it's a book that both children and adults enjoy browsing through.
