Anybody familiar with a series of trilingual Vietnamese folk storybooks that were written in Vietnamese, English & French? I'm searching..

When I was a kid, my great-uncle had collected a series of books (more like very large pamphlets - they were roughly the size of an a4 sheet folded in half and bound by staples) that were of Vietnamese folk stories and fairy tales and they always had an illustration on one page and the story written in Vietnamese, English & French on the opposite. From what I remember, the illustrations were never in color. I think they were either simple line drawings done on a solid color background or they were block print. The illustrator may be a famous Vietnamese artist because I've seen the art in other places but never discovered the name of the creator.

Sound cool, eh? My uncle eventually gave these books to me but I foolishly gave them away when I was a teenager. I'd love to get a set of them again. Any clues??
