Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the prestigious Hsin Yi Picture Book Award in Taiwan, this gentle book by native Taiwanese artist Chen tells the story of one young girl's morning journey. Shau-yu's simple walk through neighborhood streets to the local store slowly turns - as children's walks often do - into an adventure. Accompanying Shau-yu, we feel the slow and easy rhythms of a Taiwan neighborhood, but also enjoy some universal childhood delights. A blue marble becomes a blue eye, an abandoned pair of glasses becomes a costume, and a morning errand becomes an exercise in imagination. With muted colors and simple text this is both a book children will recognize and identify with and one that will transport them to another country and another way of life.

Synopsis:

The book tells of a simple walk that turns into an adventure.
