New Year Surprise!

Christopher Cheng, Illustrated by Di Wu

Illustration by Di Wu, shows a man and boy performing in a Chinese festival with a Chinese dragon.

Little Brother is told by his brother and his friends that he's too small to help out at the Spring festival. He's not strong enough to hold onto a kite, and too little to hold the dragon poles. But Father says that he has a special job to do. What can it be?

 

He knows it's not hanging the lanterns up, as Father has already done that.

 

He knows it's not choosing the treats from the hawker as Father chose the duck.

 

He knows it's not serving tea or lighting fire crackers as he did that last year.

 

Follow Little Brother through the village to find out what his special job is.
