Si Isem sa Bayang Bawal Tumawa (Isem in Grumpy Town)
by Eugene Evasco (Author)
In the town of Misoot, Datu Rupanget forbids laughing. That's why everyone is grumpy, sullen, ill-tempered and wailing. Until the very unusual Isem, born with a perpetual grin on his face, arrives in town. Can he change the datu's oppressive decree?
