This was an interesting book, personally I did not love it. I was hoping that there was going to be a little more to the book.

Review: This is an excellent poetry book because it is filled with many poems, riddles, and games from the Chinese tradition. ( )

This is a good one for the little ones. I really like their version of rhymes for kids - they are much nicer than our own (Peter, Peter pumpkin eater.....) One to own and keep. ( )

Children of all lands will welcome this enchanting collection of poems, lullabies, counting rhymes, and songs from the Chinese oral tradition.

Fresh and in-your-face, this witty novel depicts a world where women sometimes have to alter their dreams, but never have to stop embracing the future.
