Vietnamese books

In Hanoi in stores and stalls selling Vietnamese books, there were a lot of familiar titles. See below for photos.

Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar in Vietnamese
children’s books including The Little Prince, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, something by Dr. Seuss and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus
P.D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother?
The cover illustration of the Disney/Andersen mashup on the left is clearly just a bad redrawing of the cover illustration on the right.

They don’t just translate kids’ books, though.

Beauty and the Beast, Heidi, The Little Match Girl and Other Stories, The Jungle Book, and The Arabian Nights. Below: Sherlock Holmes, Anna Karenina, and Dracula.
George Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire books in Vietnamese

I was impressed with the selection, which was better than what I’ve seen in other places in Southeast Asia.
