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
