Description

"What was made in China 2,000 years ago and is still used today?" This is the riddle Ge-Hui's lost paper butterfly must solve to get a ride home on a dragon's back. To find an answer, the paper butterfly flits far and wide - to the great city of Beijing and its Forbidden City, further to the Great Wall of China and further still to the 2,000 year-old terracotta soldiers in the walled city of Xian. Finally, just when she is beginning to despair, the butterfly meets another New Year paper butterfly who has the right answer - which wins them a dragon-ride home together! This fascinating butterfly's-eye view of the land of China and its culture features illustrations inspired by Chinese folk art, and includes page-by-page brief notes, a map of China and an end-note on the ancient art of paper-making.
