Review:

This well-crafted little treasure explores the art and significance of Chinese porcelain bowls and the symbolism of their beautiful designs through a sunny story of a little girl nicknamed "Piggy" (with affection) and her piglet pal in a world of flowers, clouds, butterflies and other elements of nature. The care taken is evident from the book's embossed covers, daisy-patterned endpapers, delicate type, and fine-lined storybook illustrations to its photos of beautiful porcelain bowls in Beijing's Palace Museum. Written by Brian Tse, with illustrations by Alice Mak; translated by Ben Wang.
