繪本《小鳥和雕像》獲2019年菠蘿圈兒國際插畫展 新人獎。

The brothers set up a tent early, and waited for it to go camping after dark.
Will the world at night be different from the ones at day?
The younger brother’s expectations seem to be frustrated again: there are no miracles, no novelties, and even no difference from usual…
But in the end a miracle happened.

Before the miracle happened, they were discussing whether the miracle would happen;
When the miracle happened, they were surprised and worried secretly in the discussion;
After the miracle was over, they woke up from their dreams…

In ordinary life, how many big and small adventures have we ever had, but we are completely unaware of it?

Wherever you go, the universe will follow.
“Camping”: an “accidental” grand adventure

The universe has no end, and imagination has no boundaries.
——Zou Beibei, founder of Whole Life for Children’s

When curiosity arises, magical things come around.
——A Jia, Children’s Reading Promoter, Founder of Hongniba Book Club

Da Wu’s extraordinary is his vision, he can find magic in the commonplace.
——Zhang Hong, a writer of children’s literature and founder of the Magic Reading Book Club
