About this title:

Synopsis: A sensitively written, real-life story about a boy called Little Leap Forward, growing up in the hutongs of Beijing in the 1960's, at the time of the Cultural Revolution. Little Leap offers children an intimate and immediate account of a child's experiences as Mao Tse Tung's Great Leap Forward policy tightens its grip on China.
