Seven-year-old Kai-ming Wong is wide-eyed over the big North American city where he and his parents have gone to live. It is a far cry from the hills and countryside of South China, the only home Kai-ming has ever known. The glass towers and shiny cars are as foreign to the boy as the English spoken by the children playing in the streets. So Kai-ming stays inside his house while his parents search for work.

Unfortunately we never finished the book.
My boys thought there was too much reading and the pictures we for girls. Illustrations are very nice.
