The Legend of Cuoi, the Man on the Moon | Sự tích chú Cuội, a Bilingual Book to Celebrate Mid Autumn Festival
Have you ever looked at the Moon and wondered: Who is Up There?
According to Vietnamese legend, Cuội lives on the Moon 🌙 But how did he end up there? This book tells the story of his life and adventure. The book is written in both Vietnamese and English, and carefully edited by native speakers in both languages.
Cuội is a well-known character of the Vietnamese Mid-Autumn Festival. Each year on August 15th in the Lunar calendar, this festival celebrates the day when the Moon is at its fullest and brightest. Children often sing and parade in the streets, holding star lanterns. They also play with traditional toys such as rice-powdered toy figurines and paper masks. Families gather together to eat mooncakes and fruits while sharing folk tales about the Moon—like the story of Cuoi in this book.
The book is also illustrated with gorgeous colors, and printed on high quality paper. It comes with a free sticker sheet, too! It will be a perfect Trung Thu gift for you and your family.

This is a great story to share with little ones. I am Vietnamese but born in the US and didn’t even know the story. It was really fun reading the book with my daughter each night during bedtime. Our au pair reads it to our kids and everyone in the home learns about the culture and folklore. The illustrations are beautiful and the quality of the book is great. Highly recommend. Thank you!
