KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not only an appealing and unusual book but it is an exciting idea, demonstrated as practicable with the most difficult of languages -- an introduction to a new language through what is little more than a picture book. Here's hoping this idea doesn't begin and end with this book. Kurt Wiese, basing his book on tested experience, shows how the Chinese written language grows in association of ideas and pictures -- and how it can be made into a game with a sound experience in learning some of the simplest of the Chinese characters. The pictures grow under his facile pen -- and boys and girls can learn to write Chinese page by page.
