Little Pear is a five-year-old boy who lives in a small village in China early in the 1900s. He and his family have a tiny house with paper windows and one long bed where they all sleep. Although his story takes place more than a century ago, Little Pear is just like any little boy today—always on the lookout for excitement and adventure!

As an only son, Little Pear has greater latitude for mischief than others. In this tale, you'll join Little Pear 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. Little Pear is only looking for fun, but he has a way of getting himself into trouble without even trying!

A delightful glimpse of life in China at the turn of the century.
