It all starts with a little mouse who wanted to eat a durian, that began a journey of discovery and exploration! The story starts with a simple premise - a craving - that leads to a series of events to find out what durian really tastes like. Children will learn from the little mouse what it means to be curious, adventurous, courageous, and to boldly go where noone has gone before. And that at times, just like in this story, the result can be really sweet and memorable!

Are you a durian fan? Do you remember how your first taste of durian was like? Mine was bitter, and I recalled spitting it out? 😂Read on to find out how and why a little mouse embarks on its first durian-eating journey with its animal friends! · Book Sponsor: @mystorytreasury Special Appearance: Little T (who was trying to “show off” her fringe?! And decided to lay her head on my lap halfway) 🤷🏻♀️ · #savewithstories #savewithstoriessg #storytellingsg #StorytimeWithJiahui
We mailed this to our friend living in America who is coming to live / work in SG with her 3yo. He loves the illustrations and funny story. He can't wait to be introduced to durian proper when he arrives :)
simple and cute story for the little durian lovers. also come with a moral of the story: don’t bluff your way through!
wish the chinese terms were more cultural appropriate though, like 黄梨 instead of 菠萝.
Such a fun and silly book, the best parts are where the pages are covered with "好想吃榴莲" (really want to eat durians)! On a flip side, it also indicates the importance of being curious and finding things out for yourself - and how everyone has their own opinions about things (which may/may not be true), so the best way to know something is to find out for ourselves.
Love the lessons that you learnt from this book! Thanks for sharing Jena (: The pages covered with '好想吃榴莲' get my boys really excited and they end up chanting it non-stop haha!
My 4 year old finds this book so funny, the simple story line which has lots of room for dramatic reading make it a fun and pleasant read to beginner Chinese learners.
Really enjoyed reading this book with my child, I really love the illustration and how it has a few words per page so it was an easy read.
I love the reiteration of “I really want to eat durians”, could read to her in different tones which she really enjoyed.
Highly recommend this book!
