Crescenciana tells the life story of Kenneth’s grandmother, Crescenciana Tan, who survived World War II and the Japanese occupation of the Philippines. The memoir contains illustrations that Crescenciana and Kenneth created together—Crescenciana made watercolor paintings, and Kenneth drew her memories on top of them.
