产品描述

Fireworks and Gunpowder is the first English children’s picture book on either topic.
It is about time! Created 2,000 years ago, these inventions have changed world history!

 

Dao is an adorable red panda who can travel back in time and place! He befriends the curious kids Ethan and Emma and transports them to Asia in the blink of an eye. Together they (and appreciative readers) have fun discovering how some very cool things were created there. If only every school field trip was as exciting and informative as this!

 

Now the trio begins the new adventure in ancient China around 1 CE. They learn how alchemists discovered the secret formula for gunpowder. Then a series of dynasties used it in a growing variety of ways… even in war. They witness the evolution from flamethrower and bomb to gun and missile. However, as the use of gunpowder spread across the globe, so did fireworks! Dao and the kids zip through the centuries to see how scientific advancements made new colors and shapes. Now everyone can celebrate happy occasions with dazzling light shows in the sky.

 

This is the sequel to The Discovery of Ramen, which was also the first English children’s picture book on that subject. Co-authors Amara (a former Dark Horse comics editor) and Chin (whom the San Jose Mercury News called “an expert on Pacific Rim pop culture”) spice up history with interesting facts and globe trotting. Illustrator Juan Calle creates dynamic comic book spreads filled with action! After appreciating the importance of Fireworks and Gunpowder, get ready to discover more amazing inventions from The Asian Hall of Fame in the future!
