It’s a small garden but a big world where I can happily play and grow up. My grandfather farms and works here, and I always make him laugh. My grandfather is my favorite playmate here, and he also looks after me. I’m having a good time in this garden, where flowers bloom and fall, insects leave, and birds fly. My grandfather inadvertently creates a natural and free paradise where imagination can flourish in this garden.

  • The text of the book is excerpted from Tales of Hulan River by Xiao Hong, one of the most talented female literary figures of the Chinese Northeastern Writers Group. 
  • Selected into 2021 Bologna Illustration Exhibition

小小的園子,大大的天地,我在這一方天地中玩耍、快樂成長,祖父在這裡耕種、勞作;我是祖父的“開心果”,祖父是我的童年玩伴,也是我的“保護傘”,陪伴、呵護著小小的我。在孩子的世界里,風來雨去、花開花落、蟲兒走、鳥兒飛,別有一番趣味;在祖父的世界里,他無意間為孩子創造了一方自然的、自由的,可供想像馳騁的美好桃花源。

  • 《祖父的園子》節選自現代著名小說家蕭紅的自傳體長篇小說《呼蘭河傳》
  • 入選2021年博洛尼亞插畫展
