|Moon Festival (English
by Ching Yeung Russell
- illustrated by
Christopher Zhong-Yuan Zhang
celebrate Moon Festival every autumn. Families gather to
share a special reunion meal. Children dance and parade,
carrying colorful paper lanterns and eating moon cakes
and other delicacies.
In stunning and
dramatic oil paintings, Christopher Zhang captures the
exuberant mood of the festival as well as the quiet joy
of a family gathering, lit by moonlight. Ching' Russell's
autobiographical test poignantly conveys a child's
yearning to be her simple pleasure in celebrating the
holiday with her extended family and friends.
