An's grandmother BÃ sometimes gets trapped in her cloudy memories. An and her grandfather, Ãng, come up with a plan to bring her back to a happy moment: they grow gấc fruits so they can make xÃ´i gấc, BÃ 's favorite dish from her wedding in Việt Nam many years ago.
An and Ãng work together in the garden, nurturing the gấc seeds. They must be patient and wait for the seeds to grow, flower, and turn into fruit. When the xÃ´i gấc is finally ready, An is hopeful that her grandmother will remember her wedding wish with Ãng: hundred years of happiness.
Striking and vivid illustrations bring this tender story of a loving, intergenerational Vietnamese family to life.
