Uuwi Na Ang Nanay Kong si Darna by Edgar Samar

Uuwi na ang Nanay kong si Darna translates to My Mother Darna is Coming Home. It was written by Edgar Samar and illustrated by Russell Molina. It won the Grand Prize in the 2002 PBBY Salanga Writers’ Prize.

Darna is a Filipino superheroine, not unlike Wonder Woman. It tells the story of an Overseas Filipino Worker, working as a baby sitter in Hong Kong. It tells of the reality of Filipinos needing to live away from family just so they can provide for their family’s material needs.

The story is told in an engaging and light manner. Through the story, adults and children alike can have a better appreciation of the sacrifices that OFWs make. This story is made for kids up to the ages of 7 to 10.

interesting book, do u have a photo of this book?

From Angel: Yup, I have the book over here but hesitate to post a photo of the cover due to copyright issues. We’ve had the experience years ago of a publisher complaining about the cover of the book being shown on a website. Am not sure if the book is available in Amazon (most likely not) but it is a good read.
