A Tale of Tong Its

Product Description

Berto, a rice farmer, is contented and happy. He lives a simple life with his wife Gracia, and enjoys playing tong-its with their only child Tanya. A drought forces him to leave to provide for his family, and he eventually ends up on a ship out at sea. When he and his shipmates are captured by pirates, playing a game of tong-its saves the day—not only for him, but also for Gracia and Tanya back home.
