AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Tran, a young boy, is anxiously awaiting his mother's return from Vietnam where she has gone to fetch his cousin, Lan, who is coming to live with them. To assuage the boy's longing for his mother, his grandmother goes with him to the 'wishing cupboard'. Together they go through many past events and dreams as Tran is allowed to explore the cupboard's contents. (Libraries Australia)
