Traditional Characters with Hanyu Pinyin

Authored by Terry T Waltz

Between helping with the milking on his family's dairy farm and getting picked on at school, Josh's days in high school are full. He's making progress to catch the attention of Julia, the beautiful, exotic, and -- for ordinary, unremarkable Josh -- unreachable new girl at school. But then Christian, a hunky but inarticulate boy Josh's older brother asks to keep the school bully off Josh's case, asks Josh for help with another girl problem. Josh soon finds out that his promise to help out comes with a price -- one he may not be willing to pay.

Josh Duyiwuer is a chapter book written in simple, comprehensible Chinese intended for learners with approximately 60-100 hours of contact with the language. The 18,260-character text contains 417 unique Chinese characters. Pinyin support is accessible on the back of each page of Chinese text.
