Shu-Shu's Long Journey

Shu-Shu's Long Journey

A Story of Food Memories Among Families

'Shu-Shu’s Long Journey’ comes from the experience of my grandfather’s death, inspiring me to create a story regarding a relationship between a granddaughter and her grandfather. I also tried to combine the oriental food and its customs to explores the transformation of cultural differences into cultural understanding in children's books.

The outline of the story:
“Grandpa is coming home!” Shu-Shu cried. She is very excited and going to prepare the best food for Grandpa’s welcome party. She decided to travel to her relatives’ houses and asks them what Grandpa would like to eat. After Shu-Shu’s long journey, she holds the best party for Grandpa. She realises that they all miss Grandpa very much.
