I Won't Go to China by Enda WyleyPoor Chang-ming! He has been picked for the school team but his family will be in China then, visiting his grandma. It's not fair. 'I won't go to China,' he decides. But what about Grandma? And isn't a visit to China the most exciting thing ever? Especially when it's Chinese new year? Chang-ming doesn't think so! But China is full of surprises. This is a new series of books for modern, multi-cultural Ireland for children aged 6-8.
