Aiyah, this was so cute! I’m going to keep this book to read to my children one day. I don’t know nearly enough about Chinese history – maybe next year we can make sure we read more books translated from these countries which we don’t know much about? But this gave me rare, sweet insight into the country. Sweet because the only other book I tried to read about China (which I unfortunately did not complete – the only book this year I did not complete) was very dense, and full of difficult information that I didn’t fully understand because of my lack of knowledge. This was the opposite, it was light and friendly, but more importantly, it was the sort of book that I felt I could learn from without needing background in Chinese history.
Out of curiosity, who picked this? You, Sue, Iz?
