Shu Lin's Grandpa (Hardcover)
When Shu Lin starts at her new school, she wears yellow rain boots and a pink coat. At recess, she stands alone in the playground. At lunchtime, she eats by herself from little boxes of brightly colored food. Her classmates aren’t sure what to make of her. But one day, when Shu Lin’s grandpa comes to school to share his amazing artwork, everything changes. With a stunning double-gatefold spread revealing a beautiful Chinese painting, this uplifting story shows the transformative power of art and imagination in developing cultural understanding and empathy.
Yu Rong grew up in the countryside of China, where she began her studies in Chinese painting and contemporary art. She is the author-illustrator of A Lovely Day for Amelia Goose and the illustrator of Tracks of a Panda by Nick Dowson. She lives with her husband and children in the countryside of Cambridge, England.
