Author Robert Bright’s granddaughter found this book, originally published in 1943, on her father’s bookshelf. It was tattered and worn and the pages brown with age. She was struck by the beautiful drawings depicting a China of another age and of the lovely simple tale of a Chinese doll who travels around the world in search of someone who wants him.
The original book dust jacket was redesigned and the drawings cleaned up. The Travels of Ching was given a new life. Here it is back again in print and ready to share with a new generation of children.
Author Robert Bright is the writer and illustrator of over 20 children’s books. He is especially known for his beloved Georgie the Ghost series. He was a native of New England where he lived near his children and grandchildren, all of whom inspired his many stories. His books have been charming audiences all over the world for over 60 years.
