In this sequel to The Adventures of Na Willa (2019), our heroine Na Willa’s days are still filled with simple joys—and now Pak, her father, is back from sea! Willa delights in a new series of escapades in the alley, until, one day, Pak brings some news that will change her life forever…

Acclaimed poets Kate Wakeling and Ikhda Ayuning Maharsi Degoul bring Reda Gaudiamo’s bright, curious and charismatic character to life for English-language readers. Adventurous yet accessible, this lyrical chapter book acknowledges that exciting new beginnings also mean sad goodbyes.

Illustrated by Cecillia Hidayat.

Suddenly Mbok laughs, even though tears are still down running down her cheeks.

“Don’t write me a letter. I can’t read, Willa.”

I start crying again. Even harder than before.

Mbok hugs me and tells me to be quiet or we’ll definitely wake up Mak and Pak.

Mbok is absolutely right.

Mak wakes up and comes into Mbok’s room.

She sits down on the edge of the bed.

And the three of us hug.
