Little Pear is a young boy who lives in a small village in China. Although his story takes place long ago, he is much like any little boy today--always on the lookout for excitement and adventure!

Little Pear is just looking for fun, but he has a knack for finding trouble without even trying! Join him as he stows away to the fair in a wheelbarrow full of vegetables, nearly flies away on a kite, has a mishap with a firecracker, and is rescued from the river by a houseboat family.

User Review  - Lindsay Weston - Goodreads

This book is just adorable. Lots of cute stories and my kids loved it because the main character is a little boy who gets into sticky situations and is a little too mischievous for his own good. Read full review
