Panda Jack and the Bamboo Stalk
 

Traditional Chinese character version

Authored by Terry T Waltz
Illustrated by Terry T Waltz

Panda Jack's family is feeling the economic crunch, but he's an enterprising sort...can he manage to trade the family cow for something that will keep them fed for years to come?

This twisted version of a familiar fairy tale is written in simple Chinese, suitable for beginning readers learning Chinese as a second or foreign language (130 unique characters). Easily accessible but out-of-sight overleaf Pinyin support and word spacing make the text more accessible to new readers of Chinese, whether in a class setting, as free reading or for self-study. A full glossary is included at the end of the book, giving the meanings for the words and phrases as they appear in the text rather than a dictionary entry that might not fit the context.
