Short Stories for Kids and Teens

Foreword by: Qin Wenjun
For Ages: 9 - 12
This collection of young adult short was written by several outstanding contemporary Chinese authors and offers readers a unique perspective on childhood and young adulthood in China.

The 20 short stories in this collection, written from a child's point of view, reveal the various aspects of social life in China. They are stories about father-son/mother-daughter relationships, about the pain of growing up, about moral lessons, about youthful adventures—into the sophisticated adult world or incredible fantasy ones—and even about poverty, jealousy, rebellion and pride. Through a child-centered narrative, the kaleidoscope of life unfolds itself.
