    Download Mobi Ê Little White Duck òA Childhood in China Little White Duck, A Childhood in ChinaThe cover of this book shows a brooding or angry or unhappy girl looking straight at the reader her gloved hands at her sides one of them holding a purse A few bare branches in the distance are a little seasonal flag and I imagine it must be late fall or winter or early spring The girl takes up most of the frame She wears a green coat with a little white duck sewn on just about the center point of the page A striped scarf is tied neatly around her neck Its off white and orange matches that of her gloves It is dusk or dawn in this image The sun rises or sets leaving an orange blush in its wake Something is about to begin both timeless and distinctly set in a certain time A child is about to set off an adventure and she will on one hand have the support of her parents and on the other hand be completely on her own this book reminds me of the strange childhood world in which things have very different meanings than they do when we are adults We are just trying to figure things out a
