Herbert de Shengri

Simplified Character version

Authored by Terry T Waltz

It's Herbert's birthday, and friends are great to have...if they get you what you want. But in Herbert's case, they seem to have deleted his birthday e-mail wish list this year. Will Herbert get through to someone to enjoy his birthday to the fullest?

Told in simple Chinese, "Herbert" is a happy illustrated book containing only 46 unique Chinese words and 50 Chinese characters. The text is color-coded and has spaces inserted between words to make it more accessible to beginners. A full glossary is provided at the end of the book.

A great addition to any FVR library or for those studying Chinese on their own..
