Shu Lin's Grandpa

Author: Matt Goodfellow
Illustrator: Yu Rong
Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

Shu Lin is starting at a new school. She stands alone in the playground and at lunchtime she eats by herself from little boxes of brightly coloured food. "What's up with her?" says Barney.

But when Shu Lin's grandpa comes to school and shows the class his amazing Chinese paintings, everything changes . . .

With a stunning double-gatefold spread revealing a beautiful Chinese picture, this uplifting story shows the transformative power of art and imagination in developing cultural understanding and empathy.
