“A piggy in a pickle dishes up an historical adventure in medieval China that is sure to find a place among the family favourites. Ping Pong delights and entertains readers with a beautiful rhyming story and absorbing pictures. Perfect for bedtime reading by young and old.” Susan Ramsay, Editor, Young Post, Hong Kong
“Whoever decided that ‘dog is man’s best friend’ clearly never met Ping Pong Pig! The Yongle Emperor’s precious unicorn is sick. Will Ping Pong save the day or will she end up in the Emperor’s dinner pot? Sarah and Harry are back with their final Chinese Calendar Tale, and this one is wilder and piggier than ever!” John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong
