This set is translated from French, and is about the adventures of a curious chicken 卡梅拉 (Carmela), and her family. The books are fun and imaginative, as are the illustrations. The little chicken gets lost at sea, learns how to lay an egg, meets aliens in a UFO, etc. For an "older kids" style book, there aren't actually too many words on each page - which is great, because I'm trying to encourage my primary schooler to read more Chinese books, yet often she gets scared off with the amount of text on each page. We also like to listen to the books using Luka (which has the Ximalaya recording), and I sit in on the adventures too.... and have to ask the kids not to start without me!
