Oil-Paper Umbrella Trade Book (Hardcover)

Written By Lu Xu
Illustrated by Anastasia Arkhipova

A boy and his family flee their southern China town during wartime. With the Japanese army not far behind them, the mother falls ill. She forces the family to continue on without her and gives the boy one final gift—a red, oil-paper umbrella. Years later, the umbrella’s delicate beauty floods the boy with memories of his mother who, to him, was the most beautiful mother in the world.
