Anno's China

by Mitsumasa Anno


Quick Overview

In the 1970s the books of Japanese illustrator Mitsumasa Anno began appearing in the United States. His graphic sophistication, his unique perspective on landscapes and the people who inhabit them, and his playful sense of humor would ultimately win for him the Bologna Book Prize and Hans Christian Andersen Award. In Anno's China, once again Anno brings us a book that educates, entertains, and delights.


Through delightfully detailed watercolors, readers will explore this vast and varied land where calligraphers bestow good fortune, birds fish for men, and dragons dance. Stand with Anno on the Great Wall, visit bustling villages where the streets are waterways and everyone, even horses and bulls, travel by boat. Learn how flocks of ducks are herded on rivers and witness the discovery of thousands of clay soldiers guarding the ancient tomb of China's first emperor. 60 pages
