Released: April 22, 1991

A fine introduction to 75 simple and not-so-simple Chinese characters: their derivation, their Mandarin pronunciation, and how to write them. Cartoons clarify the pictures made by the characters; sample character combinations (e.g., language + electricity = telephone) demonstrate the evolution of both the language and the culture. A charming, handsome book. (Nonfiction. 8+) Read full book review >
