Written and illustrated by Ellen Leou, a Hong Kong based architect and designer, this is a beautiful publication with a lovely, green, cloth-bound cover and detailed illustrations. The book tells the tale of a cat and her human friend as they explore the streets of Sham Shui Po in search of Christmas gifts.
Lulu starts off Scrooge-like, but after her encounters with characters such as Effortless Effort Monkey and Hawker Hog, she has a change of heart.
It is a simple story, sweetly told...Having trawled those very streets myself, I appreciated the quirky authenticity with which they were rendered on the page, from shelves of colourful buttons and ribbons to grumpy shopkeepers and fashionista shoppers.
With redevelopment sweeping old districts, their charms are rediscovered in books like these." —South China Morning Post (Cici George)
