While doing a bit of research on Malaysian children's and YA books, I came across a video introducing Yusof Gajah, an artist and award-winning children's book writer and illustrator. Yusof also represents Malaysian writers, illustrators, and publishers of children's and YA books for international rights. (Woohoo - Malaysia in the heart, world on the mind!)
These books from Yusof are on my Christmas wish list. I LOVE HIS ART AND ILLUSTRATIONS.
Check out the video below. A couple of parts are in Malaysian, but most of it is in English.
