The book, Bụi Ở Sài Gòn (Living in Sài Gòn), features the journey of Bụi, a cat with dreams of discovering the world and people.

Bụi’s adventure begins when she meets Bòn Bon, a school boy living in HCM City who saves Bụi from living on the street.

Bụi and his new friend Bòn Bon help young readers discover the beauty of HCM City, its culture and lifestyle, and local people in daily life through their stories.
