Eighteen Vats of Water

By Ji-Li Jiang

Illustrated by Nadia Hsieh
 

Junior Library Guild Selection

The award-winning author of Red Scarf Girl presents another compelling true story of Chinese culture and history. As long as he can remember, Xian has wanted to be a great calligrapher like his father. Calligraphy is more than writing — it’s painting — and Xian learns how much work and creativity go into what look like effortless strokes. Based on the actual history of Xian and his famous father, Eighteen Vats of Water is about creativity, learning to see, and determination,as well as the importance of family traditions.
