狼婆婆 （Láng pó pó) Lon Po Po.
Chinese-born American author, Ed Young, won a Caldecott gold medal for this retell of an old Chinese folk tale. Three girls stay home while their mom goes to visit their grandmother. A wolf, claiming to be their grandmother, knocks on the door and beckons them to let her in. The eldest and wisest daughter sees through the wolf's plot and creatively convinces her younger sisters to help her outwit the wolf.
Every Chinese child grows up with a Wolf Po Po or Tiger Po Po told and retold through generations of their family. Ed Young's Lon Po Po will bring a touch of Chinese folk culture and and plenty of thrills to your children!

"Read to me":
