The Lost Child

Author: Jin Bo

Illustrator: Guo Rong

This is a story filled with poetic beauty. A young little girl pretends she is lost out of her desperate need for attention. On a journey in a new world, she encounters challenges, makes new discoveries and realizes that she was a happy and fortunate girl after all. The storyline is based on the author's own experiences. Jin believes that we all learn somewhere along the way that we are actually very fortunate. Such experiences teach us to not take anything for granted.

The illustrator skillfully designed pages with broken-up parts of Chinese characters to create a concerto of literature, graphics and characters. Guo said she hoped the young readers could "get lost" in her visual games and feel what the protagonist felt in the story.
