Doing homework is not the way eight-year-old Tsz Yan wants to spend her weekend, but she must learn six new English words. Tsz Yan is a Chinese child living in Hong Kong, where she shares an apartment with her mother and father. With humor and insight, the author paints a portrait of daily life for an engaging, energetic child living in one of the most intriguing of all international cities. Hong Kong is in the midst of dramatic, historic change from British to Chinese ownership. The fabric of Tsz Yan's life may remain largely unchanged, yet she and her parents cannot help but be concerned about the transition. Stunning, vividly detailed photographs capture resplendent street scenes and the mountainous surroundings of Hong Kong as well as the quiet moments and joyful times of a young girl and her family.
