When Adèle and Simon take a tour of China, Simon misplaces his belongings, one by one... but they all show up later, revealing their hiding places in Adèle's souvenir photographs of the trip. When siblings Adèle and Simon visit their uncle in China around the turn of the century, he buys them each gifts. Simon picks out a hat, a flute, a fan, and other small items, while his sister selects a camera to photograph their journey. As soon as they're packed and ready, it's time to set off with Uncle Sydney to explore!Award-winning author/illustrator Barbara McClintock's meticulous research and intricate pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations capture the essence of each of the culturally and historically significant sites that Adèle and Simon visit, from bustling Beijing to rural rice paddies. Children will love poring over the pictures to find Simon's lost items, and parents will value the authenticity of the art and story.
