Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze

by

Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Young Fu arrives with his mother in bustling 1920s Chungking, all he has seen of the world is the rural farming village where he has grown up. He knows nothing of city life. But the city, with its wonders and dangers, fascinates the 13-year-old boy, and he sets out to make the best of what it has to offer him.

     First published in 1932, Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze was one of the earliest Newbery Medal winners. Although China has changed since that time, Young Fus experiences are universal: making friends, making mistakes, and making ones way in the world.

Synopsis:

Experience a world of chaos and wonder.
