Above: It would have been nice to be able to say that I bought this book in a back street of Shanghai or Kowloon in the 1970's when I was a little girl, but I didn't. I found it about ten years ago at a stationery shop in Chinatown here in Melbourne. Unlike our Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, I do not read Mandarin (or Cantonese for that matter), so I am unable to translate any of the characters. When I find someone who can help, I will post the results. Meanwhile, enjoy the enormous flowers, patterns, flared pants, attentive Chinese grandparents and slightly creepy realistic looking cat in the last picture.
