This beautiful 1990 edition of the 1939 Caldecott winner captures the customs of China in the 1930s. Written by Thomas Handforth, it is the story of a little Chinese girl, Mei Li, who wanted nothing more than to go to the New Year Fair in the city. But little girls always had to stay home, so Mei Li could not have permission to go to the Fair with her brother, San Yu. She is full of curiosity and adventure, is playful and imaginative, stubborn and determined. This is a fascinating glimpse into China's past. Our copy is in Excellent Like New Condition.
