Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze 1933 Medal Winner ***

Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze is about a boy in China who becomes an apprentice and his adventures living near the Yangtze river.

This book is very similar to A Single Shard but not as riveting. I imagine that in 1933 this may have been American children's only exposure to what life was like in China many years ago. But children of today may find the writing tedious and get bored quickly.
