Chang and the Bamboo Flute

Out of stock
Chang, a mute boy whose father uses cormorants to fish, lives in a houseboat with his family, on the Li River in southern China. Chang communicates with sounds and gestures, and plays a bamboo flute with which he can mimic the sounds from his environment-lapping water, rain, chattering birds, and his friend Mei Mei’s laugh. When a flood damages their home, only Chang has the means to put things right. Black-and-white drawings.
