Description

A 2019 Batchelder Honor Book

Yu'er and her grandpa live in a small neighborhood in Beijing—and it's full of big personalities. There's a story around every corner, and each day has a hint of magic.

In one tale, Yu'er wants to swim in the Special Olympics, a sports competition for people with disabilities. But she and her grandpa don't have a pool! Their trick to help Yu'er practice wows the whole neighborhood. In another story, a friend takes Yu'er to a wild place full of musical insects. Later, Yu'er hears a special story about her grandparents. And in the final story, Yu'er and her grandpa show a cranky painter the sweet side of life.

Reading this reminded me of Miyazaki films where there is magic that seems like it might be real or the imagination of the children in the story. There are moments of magic in this volume that are endearing and heart warming. The illustrations are done in water color and provide a softness that matches the tone of the story. I want to see these characters again. I think this could be a successful easy readers series too for libraries. It reminds me of Mr. Putter and Tabby with enjoyable characters that you get to know in an episodic fashion. Wonderful addition to a children's library collection and endless possibilities for programming opportunities including a multicultural event or art class with watercolors.
