The 12-page book was written in Kapampangan and illustrated by Ms. Nancy Tolentino, a master teacher from the City Schools Division of San Fernando who is currently designated as the OIC Assistant Principal of Malpitic Integrated School.
The book also contains English translation by Dr. Fernandina Otchengco, Chief of School Governance and Operations Division of DepED.

I enjoin educators, parents and Fernandinos to mold the values of the future generation through this inspiring true story of bravery and heroism," he added.
