The Taste of Happiness:
A Poetic and Heartwarming Journey for a Smile

'Though this book originated from France, the black hair and eyes of the little boy, Leo, as well as the elegant and harmonious colours of the artwork, make it difficult to tell that this book originated from a foreign country.

Leo's mother wearing a neat black jacket with white embroidery, the detail and intricacy of the birds depicted flying South, as well as the dark yellow of the flower details on the wall, are all commonly seen in China. As the reader, it makes me feel at home with this book. The little boy's quest also moves us deeply and lets us feel as though we too, have sampled the taste of happiness.'
