It's Dat's first day of school in a new country! Dat and his Mah made a long journey to get here, and Dat doesn't know the language. To Dat, everything everybody says - from the school bus driver to his new classmates - sounds like gibberish. How is Dat going to make new friends if they can't understand each other?

Luckily there's a friendly girl in Dat's class who knows that there are other ways to communicate, besides just talking. Could she help make sense of the gibberish?

Young Vo
Young Vo learned to draw before he could write. He drew a lot of characters, then began to write stories for them. There were not many job choices that he could make, so he decided to be an animator, illustrator, and author. Now he writes and draws his stories before the sun rises, then during the day, he animates. Follow him @youngvoart.

Young Vo aprendió a dibujar antes de saber escribir. Dibujó muchos personajes y luego empezó a escribir sus historias. No tenía muchas opciones de trabajo, así que decidió ser animador, ilustrador y autor. Ahora dibuja y escribe historias antes de que salga el sol, y luego, durante el día, hace animaciones.
