The book showcases new stories and old favorites written and drawn by Rina Ayuyang, cartoonist and creator of “Namby Pamby”, a mini-comic series that explores the humorous side of life's ordinary moments. Rina Ayuyang was born in Pittsburgh to a large Filipino-American family and though she's moved cross country to San Francisco, she often feels the pull of her family obligations both in Pittsburgh, the Bay Area and the Philippines. Using heart, humor and beautifully illustrated comics, Rina tells the loving (and sometimes aggravating) story of her how her relationship with her family has grown and changed as she's become an adult. Beyond family life, Rina must also deal with a long commute to her office job which provides her with ample time to daydream about celebrities, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Murder, She Wrote.
