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.

About the Author:

After graduating from Radcliffe College in 1934, Marian Cannon Schlesinger spent a year travelling in China and studied Chinese painting in Peking. On her return, she wrote SAN BAO AND HIS ADVENTURES IN PEKING. A classic in its day, it is now republished after almost sixty years. Mrs. Schlesinger is also the author of SNATCHED FROM OBLIVION, a charming memoir of growing up in the academic confines of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
