The Four Seasons of the Pipa

A girl in snowy Canada dreams of returning to Kunming, China, to visit her grandfather in this latest addition to the musical picture book series. The volume focuses on the pipa, a popular Chinese folk instrument; a CD and a download link are provided to access the accompanying music. Vibrant, layered illustrations use multiple techniques to depict bird and flower markets, heaping bowls of noodles, and the long-awaited arrival of spring in this story about family, tradition, and the soothing power of music.
