Since the 1980s, author and illustrator Larry Feign's unique brand of East meets West humor has been featured in numerous books and newspapers around the world. China Books has worked with Larry Feign on this new, 2015 edition of AIEEYAAA! which has been published for the North American audience in mind. The book features some of the wackiest and irreverent characters from Feign's previous books, and presents them in this unique, language-learning cartoon book. Featuring Chinese characters, Mandarin and Cantonese pronunciation, and a cartoon for each featured word, AIEEYAAA! truly offers the best of both worlds when it comes to learning Chinese whether you are a seasoned expat or are traveling to China for the first time.
