Surprising Mrs Rhubarbson (Marble Mangosteen’s Good Deed Collection Book 1)

I have just read the Chinese version of Reena Bhojwani’s Surprising Mrs Rhubarbson, and enjoyed it. My Chinese is about the same standard as a six-year-old’s, and I found the book was just within my reach. I probably missed some of the jokes, but it was a heartening and sweet tale, well told, and the illustrations are well executed.

I think it would be a nice gift to any young child. You can buy the Chinese version on Amazon here, but those who live in Hong Kong can buy the actual book at Bookazine and keep out local bookstore alive.
