Ruby's Wish

This is a paperback edition of the gorgeous and acclaimed hardcover, Ruby's Wish. If you walk down a certain road in a certain city in old China, past the pet market with its yellow-and-green ricebirds in their bamboo cages and the goldfish in their porcelain bowls, you will find a little girl named Ruby. Ruby is unlike most girls of her time. Instead of getting married, Ruby is determined to attend university when she grows up, just like the boys in her family. Inspired by the life of the author's grandmother and paired with evocative watercolor paintings, Ruby's Wish is an engaging portrait of a determined young girl and a family who rewards her independent spirit.
