There is No Shrimp... And Other Lies My Mother Told Me is an autobiographical manga by Kenny Loui. A sequel to Life Lessons from a UFO Catcher by the same author, the comic book follows Kenny after he lands himself in jail following his fistfight with Killian. Kenny finds a pink plush pig to whom he starts telling stories from his childhood and how the sweet lies of his mother taught him some valuable lessons. Kenny's mom used to live in a black-and-white world, and she taught him to be grateful that his world was so much more colorful. Whether tricking him into eating his food or making him wary of drugs, Kenny's mom found ingenious ways to impart wisdom to her son. In this installment, you will learn about some fun Couple Holidays unique to South Korean culture.
I am two books through this series and already a fan of Kenny's adventures. There is No Shrimp... And Other Lies My Mother Told Me continues in the same joyful spirit of the previous installment, where Kenny Loui finds a way to incorporate some grounded moral lessons into fun-filled adventure stories that you can't help but love. Illustrator Yamawe's artwork is as brilliant as ever, making the narrative even more vibrant and effective. I loved that Kenny still hadn't lost his affinity for plush toys in jail. Comic books like these are the best way to teach kids about morals and life. Highly recommended.
