TO GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE:
A Visit to Old-Town Beijing

Author/photographer: Douglas Keister

Journey through Beijing and the magical hutong neighborhood with a young Chinese girl, Zhang Yue, her cousin, and her waipo -- Mandarin for "maternal grandmother" -- for a day of adventure and tradition. On their way to visiting their waipo, the girls see the sights of Beijing and wander around the shops and markets of the hutong. When they reach their grandmother's house, they get a surprise-Waipo is going to teach them how to make dumplings! Along with a dumpling recipe, To Grandmother's House is peppered with full-color photography as well as Mandarin translations of the English text.
