Publisher’s Description: 

When Peach Blossom Village's bridge disappears, Master Chen must solve the mystery! The Mystery of Dragon Bridge is an English-Chinese bilingual children's fantasy story. The tale revolves around the inhabitants of Peach Blossom Village and the mysterious Dragon Bridgethe villagers' only connection to the outside worldwhich suddenly vanishes in the middle of the night. The astonished villagers appoint a retired soldier, Master Chen, to investigate what has happened to their missing bridge. What he finds will surprise readers as much as it did the perplexed villagers! Both a satisfying mystery story and a lesson in working together for the community, preserving the environment, and appreciating what is often taken for granted, The Mystery of Dragon Bridge can be enjoyed by younger children and intermediate readers alike. The short, easy-to-read story is presented in both English and simplified Chinese, with vocabulary suitable for students aged 7 to 10, and features 12 beautiful watercolors painted by the author.

I love books about dragons, well Chinese dragons, that is (not the fire-breathing, damsel-chomping Western beasts). Kids stories are particularly interesting because of the illustrations that adorn the fables. Because of that, I was particularly taken with writer/illustrator Ann Howard's new picture book. The watercolor illustrations are highly detailed and beautifully rendered.
