This story of a country boy spending a day in the marketplace of old Peking, with its exquisite illustrations, makes a delightful book for children of all ages. Author/illustrator Marian Cannon Schlesinger depicts street fairs, acrobats, children's games, kite flying, wandering camels, and other colorful scenes of city life, which have all but disappeared from modern Beijing.
