Long-Long and his grandfather go to town as everyone is getting ready for the Chinese New Year to sell their cabbages and earn money to celebrate the holiday.

Tuttle Pub
In this beautifully illustrated multicultural children's book, a little Chinese boy named Long-Long accompanies his grandfather into the city to sell cabbages in order to buy food and decorations for the New Year. Selling cabbages is harder than Long-Long expects, and he encounters many adventures before he finds a way to help his grandfather, and earn New Year's treats for his mother and little cousin.

The stunning, authentic illustrations-by a talented Chinese artist-capture the look of everyday life in rural China. Combined with the charming story of Long-Long's trip to the city, they offer a unique introduction to Chinese culture. Includes a glossary of Chinese terms.

I liked the detail and view into the life of this family. I didn't like the inclusion of a shady vegetable seller at the market in the story. It seemed negative and unnecessary.
