Plug: Little White Duck, by Andres Vera Martinez and Na Liu

The all-ages publisher Graphic Universe (a division of Lerner Publishing Group) invited me to contribute a quote to their new title, Little White Duck: A Childhood in China, and this is what I wrote:

A graceful marriage of words and images, Little White Duck is Andrés Vera Martinez’s loving evocation of his wife Na Liu’s childhood in China during the Cultural Revolution. Ancient fables mix with the hard realities of rapid industrialization, and Martinez’s colorful, accessible artwork perfectly captures the look and feel of that time and place. It’s a gem of a book.
