New Year Surprise! 2016 single work picture book children's

'Set in snowy rural Northern China this book is about the coming Chinese New Year Spring Festival and one little boy who is told that he’s too small to help out at the Spring Festival. Follow him through his village to see how he finds a way to join in! It’s a very big surprise. The very traditional life depicted in this book, with people wearing thick clothing and where beds are often platforms that are built over small wood-fired furnaces remain the same today.'

Rebel! 1993 single work picture book children's 'The General marches across Burma's dusty plain with tanks, guns, and soldiers. He reaches the school and raises his baton; his tanks flatten the slides, swings, and monkey bars. "You are my people now," he tells the villagers. "I will make the laws." They are too frightened to resist, and how can unarmed farmers and children fight against an army? Then, somewhere inside the school, a rebel responds....In this story, the courageous action of a young rebel—and its impact in a culture that values "saving face"—results in a village's defeat of tyranny. The author based this story on an incident that happened in Rangoon.' (Source: Phoenix Education website)
