About the Once Upon A Time In China… series
China has a very long history that includes many fascinating stories, but often they are too complex for young children to read. For this historical fiction collection, Jillian Lin has rewritten the most well-known tales as simple, engaging short stories, for kids from age five to enjoy and at the same time, learn from. While some stories sound almost like fairytales, they are all based on true historical facts. Fully illustrated, each book contains the life story of a famous figure in Chinese history, a list of interesting facts, a quiz, and a map.

Other books in this book collection are:

- The Miracle Doctor (to be released in March 2015)
- The Mountain Man of Words and Music (to be released in April 2015)
- The Dreamer of Stars (to be released in May 2015)
