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.

It's such a nice day, time to go fishing with Dad. The line is moving. What's on the hook? Pull the line. The cutdefish and the crucian are both so witty that they manage to escape from the fishing line. Try one more time. What do they finally pull up? It's a huge surprise.
