Shen of the Sea

Shen of the Sea: Chinese Stories for ChildrenGoodreads Synopsis:    A series of fascinating Chinese stories, strong in humor and rich in Chinese wisdom, in which the author has caught admirably the spirit of Chinese life and thought.
















My Thoughts:

-    The first Newbery committee must have loved folk tales, because this is the second one I've read, and I'm trying to read them in order.

-    Some of these stories were okay, but most of them were eh. 

-    I don't think middle grade readers would enjoy this.

  1. That’s disappointing. It should appeal to kids.
