I'd give Candied Plums a hug if I could. We have a very large Chinese population and I'm always struggling to find good Chinese language books to add to our collection. These are gorgeous and I love the fact that they are contemporary Chinese picture books. We have many translations of American titles but not as many original Chinese stories. I am also very glad of the full English descriptions of the books on the website.

—Julie Rines from Thomas Crane Public Library


Look, there is a dark, dark hole. A hungry bug wriggles out.

There is a dark, dark hole. The ants come out in a long line.

There is a dark, dark hole. The little crabs come out sideways.

Guess what will come out of the hole next?
