The illustrations are done in Chinese brush painting and are beautiful. They stand alone as wonderful paintings.

—Youth Services Book Review Starred Review

Little sweet talks, together with brush-pen illustrations, shows us great bond between a mother and her child.

—Chinese Books for Young Readers

Every word, every sentence, is absolutely brimming with love.

“Candied Plums showcases the variety and art of China's children's literature at a time when the United States receives precious little exposure to the vibrancy of contemporary Chinese culture. The books can be used as educational tools to learn about Chinese language about culture, but most crucially stand alone as unique, captivating stories with universal appeal. They are beautifully produced and deserve to be read by children (and adults) the world over.”

—Michael Buening

Little Rabbit was playing outside in the garden with questions popping up into his mind. He was curious about Mama's big eyes, long ears and strong legs. Chinese brush painting combines naturally and perfectly with the little sweet talk between the little rabbit and his mother.
