Along the way, readers will discover iconic attractions in China, experience traditional Chinese activities, and learn about friendship, courage and teamwork.
FROM THE CRITICS
“Gusto & Gecko Travel to China is a cute picture book which introduces young readers to some Chinese customs and tourist attractions. It is also a story about courage, friendship and collaborative teamwork….It would be an excellent resource for teaching [5-8 year olds] about Chinese New Year.”– The Children’s Book Council of Australia
“The cast is sweet and amusing and shows real character; although Panda is no warrior, he still bravely protects everyone. Returning artist Hägg’s double-page illustration of a lighthouse is printed on coated paper that sparkles, and the effect is magic. An absolutely wonderful fantasy tale.”– Kirkus Review
