Chinese Cinderella

A number of my products are Chinese Cinderella related. These vary from the traditional European story Cinderella in Mandarin CD with Chinese Character book (cute book in Bo Po Mo and Traditional Characters) or just the Cinderella Story in Mandarin on CD. And there is what is perhaps the original Cinderella story, Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story from China, a bilingual book that is in English with Chinese Characters with some nice illustrations. Products I carry are somehow Chinese related focusing on Children Products, be it Chinese Culture or learning the Chinese Language (which is why I stock the European Cinderella in Mandarin Chinese).

Two exciting new products are:

Chinese Cinderella, The True Story Of An Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah
Chinese Cinderella, The True Story Of An Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah. The daughter of a wealthy Hong Kong businessman describes her very difficult childhood and the psychological abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepmother. English. Paperback. 205 Pages.

and Chinese Cinderella And the Secret Dragon Society by Adeline Yen Mah
Set during World War II, a young Chinese girl made homeless by her
evil stepmother begins a new life as a martial-artist and spy, joining
the Chinese resistance movement to work against the occupying Japanese. Fantasy.

Both by the same author
Adeline Yen Mah how has a web site! Some very moving letters about Chinese Cinderella as well as a picture album for Chinese Cinderella, since the book is based on her family history. Great reviews of Chinese Cinderella on the site as well as teacher notes. Here is one letter on Chinese Cinderella from a young student that is especially good. Looks like I need to go update my description on ChildBook.com of Chinese Cinderella Looks like the book from the guest book is used in schools, and a few students were asking for help :-) Wonders of the Internet when you can actually contact the author! It looks like the author lives in Orange County in California which is close to where ChildBook.com is located (we are in located on the edge of Los Angeles County in an area with some of the best Chinese Restaurants around, about 3 miles from Orange County).
