Easy-to-Read Novels in Chinese


What People are Saying

“We purchased this for our 12-year-old son who has been studying Mandarin for about 6 months. He loved it. It’s often difficult to find materials that are age appropriate but at the same time, language level appropriate – not to mention truly entertaining and fun. This entire series definitely hits the mark.”

Amy, Amazon review

“I think there are two camps of Mandarin learners: those who avoid characters and those who embrace them. I was firmly in the first camp…until I read this book. I don’t think I was fully prepared for how much I would enjoy it, and now I can see the usefulness (and fun) of learning to read Chinese. “

Peter Samet, Author, Amazon review

“I’ve been self studying Chinese for 2 years now and reading the preview pages gave me a feeling of accomplishment. The usual reading material I come in contact with (drama subtitles) are always difficult so it gives me a feeling of not being good at all (which might still be true). But this book gives me the reward I deserve!”

Patrick G., Reddit

“For the first time since I began studying Chinese, I forgot I was studying while I studied. Reading this was different. I just enjoyed the ride. It was enjoyable enough that I could return to it several times. That is the power of fiction.”

Gary, Amazon review

“The best thing about these books? The immense satisfaction of being able to say – “I read a book in Chinese, and I understood it!” A definite boost to the roller coaster difficulty of language learning. I cannot recommend highly enough.”

Mushy, Amazon Review

“Being able to read an extended text for the first time in a new language feels a little like standing on your own two feet before you take those first steps. For me it’s the moment when I’ve felt a real boost for further learning! “
