Sweet and strange little vignettes set in Beijing. Good sense of wonder and kindness. ( )
  jennybeast | Apr 14, 2022 |
A sequential art collection of short stories featuring Yu'er and her Grampa. The stories are sweet with charming art but not particularly memorable. An excellent choice when you just need to feel better about life. Suitable for ages 7 to 11. ( )

A loving intergenerational story of a disabled little girl named Yu'er and her Grampa. The bright pastel illustrations give Yu'er's hutong a homey and inviting feel that readers will settle into. ( )

Young Yu'er lives with her grandfather in a small neighborhood of Beijing. This graphic novel presents four vignettes of their life together. The events that happen have a touch of magical realism to them, but it's hard to describe exactly so without giving away the lovely endings this gives to the stories. They do, however, live up to the subtitle of "stories of everyday wonder." The first three were incredibly sweet stories; the last one didn't hit quite the same note although it did try. Oddly, I'm pretty sure Doubao shows up in this story again even though at the end of the second story, it is specifically stated that Yu'er never sees him again. So that seemed like a slight misstep.

I really enjoyed the sweet grandparent-grandchild relationship portrayed here. It appears that Yu'er's guardian is her grandfather, although it is not specifically mentioned and only her grandmother's passing is acknowledged; no information is given about the status of her parents. Yu'er uses a crutch to get around on her own or is transported in a large basket on her grandfather's bicycle; there are no details about what she may be dealing with physically, but it is strongly implied that this is a permanent malady, not a temporary one. (For instance, in the first story she mentions wanting to be a participant in the Special Olympics.) It is really nice to see both of these scenarios presented, as many children do live with their grandparent(s) as their primary caregiver and many children do have health conditions that result in accommodation need(s), but unfortunately these are not usually seen much in children's literature, and even less so as just a matter of fact (rather than as a 'problem' novel or a didactic informational text).

The illustrations appear to be watercolors and have just a touch of an impressionistic feel to them. They are very in keeping with the general whimsy of the book. ( )

This is a pretty and soothing read. I loved the art, and the stories are sweetly odd. It's one that I would happily read over and over, just looking for more details and enjoying the gentle stories. ( )
