Once there was a boat called 嚓嚓号,
it could sail the seas and even fly in the air!
There was a man in the boat, 西普先生, the captain!
He is an extremely kind man
who always says "yes" to any request that comes his way.
What fun adventures would he have?


We really like

  • that there's hanyu pinyin, encouraging budding readers to enjoy books on their own!
  • adorable illustrations
  • funny storylines, and humorous characters
  • descriptive language used that can be used in our daily conversations or writing!
    eg book 1 - “自言自语地嘀咕着”,“这可是求之不得的事情”,“不费吹灰之力”, book 2 - "心里七上八下的“,"拳击冠军垂头丧气,坐到了地上。“,”鼓起了勇气“
