'This book aims to present an all-round profile of Tong [King Sum] to readers curious about how he lived and worked. The contents cover different facets of his life -- the environment in which he grew up, his attitude towards life, his daily activities, and his dedication towards an artistic career. Going through these pages, readers can admire his works and share his viewpoints and thus penetrate his inner thoughts and visions.
[...] What you will find in this book are articles tracing Tong's life-long progress in simple language and light-hearted tone. There are also pieces contributed by friends who wish to keep him in their treasured memory. These portrayals which see Tong from different angles help us understand more clearly his artistic and human temperament.
Many of Tong's well-known sculpture works are shown in this book. There are also sketches which he made, paintings, woodblock prints, and even cartoons which relatively few people have seen. There are also quite a number of photographs showing Tong at work and recording how stage by stage certain pieces had come into being.' --Excerpt from Preface, written by Tong Chiu Wai Yee.
