Good Night, Lala, a collection of short stories for intermediate readers, was formally launched in a private event on July 25, 2013. This foray into a new line for older kids is a testament to Adarna House’s commitment to serve Filipino readers’ growing interests and reading achievements.
Written by Corazon Ordoñez-Calica and edited by her daughter Maya O. Calica, Good Night, Lala is set against the backdrop of Pampanga during the Japanese Occupation. Young Corazon finds that wartime, though thoroughly dangerous, can also be a chance for wonderful adventures and enchanting experiences.
These adventures and experiences were once the stories Corazon, lovingly called Lala by her grandchildren, told during bedtime. They are now to be found in this book, to be shared and cherished by readers, young and old.
Good Night, Lala is available at a book store near you and from Adarna House. For inquiries, contact (02) 352-6765.
