An original story by Marcie Gilbert and Jamie Green, Zee Adventure One: Borrowing China is a whimsical picturebook about a red-haired, green-eyed girl named Zee who sets out to ask to borrow the country of China for her mother's dinner party, not realizing that her mother just wants to rent fancy plates. Aided by a friendly magical butterfly, she goes to see China for herself; a kindly monk informs her to her dismay that she can't simply borrow China--China is far too large! Viewing the majestic scope of the country and a joyful parade of people, she decides, "Maybe we can't borrow all of China, but we can invite a few people from China." The result is the most exciting and interesting party Zee's family has ever had! The intense color illustrations capture the zesty energy of this cheerful and optimistic adventure.
