父与子 Father and Son - with Hanyu Pinyin

  • $9.90

Vater und Sohn is about a plump, balding father and his son in everyday situations. Lots of humour, sure to elicit giggles. Gift this to a child who resists Mandarin and he will be begging you to read this to him to find out what happened!

Can't find the book in the house? Perhaps Dad has sneaked the comic away in a corner and is enjoying the read! Fun for adults too. Perfect gift for a father too, newly minted or otherwise.

Who says Mandarin books are boring? No way!

Fun fact:
This was originally a pantomime comic, without any words, and featured weekly in the Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung from 1934 to 1937.

Recommended for Ages: 2-99
Illustrator: E. O. Plauen (German cartoonist)
Pages: 276
Format: Softcover
Language: Simplified Chinese With Hanyu Pinyin

Thumbs up!

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the comic was very engaging and captivating, even to me as an adult! There were a few moments I couldn't help but laugh out loud myself. Having the HYPY also made it much easier for my son to try to read on his own.

Thank you Sarah for your review! This comic has brought a lot of giggles to our family too!
Love the book recommendation!!

Thank you Linxin for recommending me this totally funny comic! To be honest, I’ve seen it around but the cover didn’t appeal to me. But Linxin said this was good and so I got it. My reluctant Pri 2 reader gave it a side-eye while I read to her and I cajoled her to read just 1 page. Then she was poring over it during dinner and she brought it to school the next day for silent reading. A total win! The hanyu pinyin definitely helps. Plus it’s in a comic form so it’s easy to digest and funny. Even I found it funny. Now I need to get it out of her hands and read it myself.

Thank you Abigail for taking the time to share your story! It's incredible to hear how really funny books make Mandarin enjoyable for kids, that they even want to read it by themselves. Double win!
