Little Pear

Rating
Little Pear is a young boy who lives in a small village in China. Although his story takes place long ago, he is much like any little boy today--always on the lookout for excitement and adventure! Little Pear is just looking for fun, but he has a knack for finding trouble without even trying! Join him as he stows away to the fair in a wheelbarrow full of vegetables, nearly flies away on a kite, has a mishap with a firecracker, and is rescued from the river by a houseboat family.

Reviews

"This story has charm and a natural, childlike quality which will endear it to the six- and seven-year-olds who are beginning to read by themselves."--The New York Herald Tribune
