Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chinatown. City within a city. Home to street cobblers and herbalists, tai chi masters and kung fu students, outdoor fish markets and lots and lots of restaurants. And best of all, when the Chinese New Year begins there's a New Year's Day parade, complete with a lion dance.

Young readers will be equally fascinated by the tour of this colorful neighborhood--and by their tour guide and his grandma who live there.

Synopsis:

In this tribute to his own childhood in Chinatown, William Low melds a spare, evocative text with richly descriptive art, a combination that lends a feeling of immediacy to every page. Herbal shops, outdoor markets, and a tai chi chuan class in the park are among the many sights a young boy sees when taking a walk with his grandmother. Full color.
