About the story:

Brandon and his cousins are on a trip to visit their grandparents in Beijing, China. While bonding with family, practicing Chinese, touring historic sites and feasting on local dishes, Brandon thinks he sees a tiny panda. However, every time he gets close, the panda disappears! Is Brandon imagining this small creature, or is it real? Will Brandon find out before he has to fly back home?

Brandon Goes to Beijing (北京) is a multicultural, multi-generational chapter book. This book includes some Mandarin Chinese (Simplified) with Pinyin pronunciation, adding layers for those learning or interested in the Chinese language and culture.

Brandon Goes to Beijing (北京) follows Eugenia’s debut picture book, Brandon Makes Jiǎo Zi (餃子)(a story about a boy and his grandma who bond while making Chinese dumplings, called jiǎo zi (餃子).

About the Author:

Eugenia Chu is an attorney, turned stay-at-home mom, turned writer. She lives on a magical beach in Miami with her husband and son, Brandon, who is the inspiration for her stories. She enjoys reading, writing, traveling, yoga and drinking too much coffee. She has been a presenter at numerous schools, libraries and book festivals.

Inspiration:

When Brandon was very little, the author couldn’t find children’s storybooks to read to him which touched upon Chinese culture and which included some Chinese (Mandarin) words to teach and/or reinforce his Chinese vocabulary, so she started writing her own. Brandon Goes to Beijing (北京) is her second “Brandon” story and first children’s chapter book.

Get WORLDS, ANGELS, and more!

Those capitals are for a very good reason–they’re the names of just two of the wonderful microfiction anthologies out from Black Hare Press!

WORLDS takes you into tantalizing new environments and adventures with not only new worlds to explore but the not-always-so-kind creatures along the way. Look for my “Single Colonists Wanted” story!

ANGELS takes a twist into the divine, where you may find a different kind of miracle than you expect… Warning: This is NOT religious fiction.
Look for my “Angel vs Society” story!

If you click this link to get to the Amazon page for Black Hare Press, you’ll also see two other anthologies just about out:

MONSTERS (pre-order) reveals the creatures hiding in the shadows and the creatures boldly out in the open. Are you prepared to be delightfully chilled–or horrified?

While I didn’t submit a story for MONSTERS, I did for BEYOND, so:

BEYOND (pre-order) heads into paranormal activity–or is it simply that we don’t realize what walks alongside us every day? You’ll get avenging apparitions and spirited hauntings, but also some along chillingly familiar lines. When you get it, look for my “Phantom Requiem” story!
