Anh Do is one of Australia's most loved and recognised comedians. He is also an author, actor and a respected keynote speaker, addressing issues such as teamwork, leadership and goal setting.
Anh's autobiography, The Happiest Refugee, written for an adult audience, won several Australian Book Industry Awards in 2011, including Book of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and Biography of the Year. His inspiring story relives his family’s perilous journey from war-torn Vietnam to the shores of Sydney.
Anh's first picture book, The Little Refugee, illustrated by Bruce Whatley, tells Anh’s story to a younger audience. Working with his wife, Suzanne, the story of the Do family’s perilous escapade from their homeland is translated into an inspiring and moving story.
The Little Refugee tells the story of a family who battled against the odds, and whilst doing so remained strong and supportive of each other. Survival, hope and gratitude are demonstrated in this beautifully illustrated picture book. This is a book that educates, opens eyes and helps to remind us what life is truly about.
