Shu Lin's Grandpa
By Matt Goodfellow
Illustrated by Yu Rong
Shu Lin, a Chinese immigrant girl, finds it hard to gain acceptance in her new school, until her grandpa saves the day.
Shu Lin has just started at a new school. She stands alone in the playground and at lunchtime she eats by herself from little boxes of brightly coloured food. “What’s up with her?” says Barney.
But when Shu Lin’s grandpa comes to school and shows the class his amazing Chinese paintings, everything changes….
With a stunning double-gatefold spread revealing a beautiful Chinese picture, this uplifting story shows the transformative power of art and imagination in developing cultural understanding and empathy.
