A new children's publication – Doggfucius and the Adventure of the White Carrot – fits perfectly into that "special" category. Co-created by Dr. Li-Hsin Chang and Vesna Dokmanovic, Doggfucius tells the tale of the young canine twins Doggfucius and Fee Fee, who are sent off on the adventure of a lifetime in hope of saving the life of their beloved Grandfather Fucius, who is suffering from a mysterious illness that threatens his life.
Dr. Tea gives Doggfucius and Fee Fee their marching orders: they must travel into the far north, into the land of the Perpetual Night, in search of the White Carrot that might save Grandfather Fucius' life. There are only a few gigantic hitches – a single, life-saving White Carrot is produced and ready for picking on only one special day every 10 years. And if that one carrot is not picked on that one particular day when the sun is warm and the ground surrounding the carrot melts, all hope will be lost.
And so, the grand adventure begins, carried along by a suspenseful, plot-twisting storyline – and marvelous complementary artwork – in this 73 page storybook. Along the way, Doggfucius and Fee Fee – and their special guide Jum Jum – encounter numerous dangerous obstacles and life-threatening roadblocks, but with the help of some new-found friends, and their own courage, hard work and ingenuity, they somehow manage to overcome the odds.
Doggfucius and the Adventure of the White Carrot is a rarity in the world of children's books today. Parents will love it for the wonderful story it tells; their children will delight in the sheer intrigue of the White Carrot adventure. And then, given that the story itself is set within a loving Chinese canine family, there is also this bonus: Doggfucius and the Adventure of the White Carrot contain a helpful glossary and English translation of some everyday Chinese words that are used throughout the book. It is a great introduction of the Chinese language and culture to a young child.
In 2010, with Chinese business and culture so much more prominent in our world, a little bit of language learning can go a very long way! Buy this book, read it with your kids at bedtime, and watch them lose themselves in the White Carrot adventure.
