The Story of Water and Ink
This is a story about the friendship between a proud Water Baby, a simple and honest Ink Baby, and a witty Brush Baby. Their different characters and close relations imply the features and skills of Chinese ink painting. With a strong Chinese style, the illustrations in the book are all traditional ink paintings.
The pictures go perfectly with a simple story that is easy for children to understand. On the final page, the conclusion highlights the whole book: team work can create good productions; one cannot go without others' help and support.
"This book is excellent. I just read it once to my two-and half year-old child, and she can recite it … I like it so much," a reader commented online.
