Do not miss these adorably illustrated, fantastically fun and award winning books by Japanese author illustrator Suzuki Noritake: 我的神奇马桶(wǒ de shén qí mǎ tǒng) My Magic Toilet, 我的百变浴缸(wǒ de bǎi biàn yù gāng) My Everchanging Bathtub & 我的梦幻被子(wǒ de mèng huàn bèi zǐ) My Dreamy Blanket.
Noritake's incredible imagination brilliantly depicts how children can transform the most mundane of objects or activities into their own fantasy universe. In each book, short and conversational language conveys hilarious plots, a perfect reader for Chinese learners longing for simple yet thoroughly engaging stories. A mysterious thief appears in each book, layering a hide-and-seek interactive dimension to an already joyous reading experience.
我的百变浴缸 My Everchanging Bathtub
A young boy is preparing to take a bath in his ordinary bathtub when he wishes it would change into a different tub every once in a while. What about a super long bathtub? A spherical tub? A maze tub? A conference table bathtub? ... So many bathtubs! Now it’s time for mom’s bathtub. She’s busy with housework everyday. I’ll give her an assistant bathtub. She can sit in it and it will cook and clean. Everyday dad has a long subway commute, he might as well take a nice bath—but if there’s no seat, he’d have to stand around naked! Since big brother wants to be a pilot, he’ll get a plane bathtub. We’ll fly together—but, oh no! The tub’s leaking! A thief has stolen the stopper. This is bad! Get him! Get him!
我的神奇马桶 My Magic Toilet
A boy is bored by using the same potty every single day and starts to imagine different types of potties. What about a soft, sponge like potty? A high tower potty? A roulette potty with big wheels? A potty in disguise that one only gets to use it if he can spot it among rows of fake potties…
The boy designs a customized potty for each of his friends. A library potty for the book-loving Xue; a racetrack potty for runner Jian…For himself though, he likes a roller coaster potty!
我的梦幻被子 My Dreamy Blanket
A boy climbs into a soft puffy blanket at night. Wait! The same blanket everyday. What if the blanket changes occasionally? A chair blacket? A donut blanket? A car blanket? The boy got into a blanket battle. He is in trouble!
