Dear Catherine Louis and Shi Bo,

My Little Book of Chinese WordsHoly God, My Little Book of Chinese Words is attractive.  Small and square, exquisitely designed, and fascinating to someone like me, who is entirely European in ancestry and is always fascinated by languages so unlike my native one.  The art is absolutely beautiful, and the color palette is vibrant and appealing.  The best part about the art, though, is the composition of each picture, echoing the ancient pictographic characters for each word, presented alongside the modern character.  The whole flow of the pages is just lovely!  Irresistable.  Five stars for both of you.

Love,

apple
