About the Book

TAGUAN WITH EDEN AND FRIENDS: First in a series of children's book adaptations from Bittermelons and Mimosas, a Philippine Memoir by Nieves Catahan Villamin. Ever since she had learned to run, my granddaughter loved to play a game we called "Where is Eden?". This was our own version of taguan or hide-and-seek. She would always find the cleverest place to hide, which inside an apartment weren't that many. The closet near the doorway was her most favorite spot. Charming and funny, this story will surely warm your heart and remind you of your own childhood.
