A treasure hunt paired with beautiful, well-researched, and realistic illustrations — this is a gorgeous tribute to 1980s Taiwan and everything from that era!
What a strange morning!
When Jun Jun (君君) woke up this morning, she found grandpa anxiously looking around the house in search of something. Did something go missing...?
Even as the rest of the family sat down for breakfast, grandpa continued to search up and down the house for it. Jun Jun figured it must be very important, so she decided she will help grandpa out
Armed with four clues written on the back of a scrap piece of paper, Jun Jun visits the vegetable market, the suit and tuxedo shop on main street, the alleys lined with food stalls, the fragrant bamboo shop, the little tuck shop filled with all sorts of bottles and cans... she even made a stop at the train station and the big temple!
Throughout her search, there were many kind aunties and uncle who were eager to help. With everyone interpreting the clues a little differently, Jun Jun finds her hands full with all sorts of items.
Among bags of different items she found, was any of it what grandpa was looking for? What is this treasure of grandpa's that went missing?
This is gorgeous illustrated book that feature many of Taiwan's beautiful streetscapes and old buildings. A truly beautiful walk down memory lane for those who grew up there in the 1980s.
