My sweet and uber-talented friend Eugenia Chu is proud to announce her newest book, Brandon Goes to Hong Kong! AND, this wonderful diverse chapter book will be FREE in Kindle form from 3/16-3/19!
Brandon is on a trip to Hong Kong where he meets up with his grandparents and is introduced to his cousin, Kelsey. While touring the city and feasting on local dishes, Brandon thinks he sees a great red dragon – but is it real or imagined? Does anyone else see the dragon? Will Brandon find out before he flies back home? Brandon Goes to Hong Kong is a multicultural, multigenerational chapter book includes some Mandarin Chinese (Simplified) with Pinyin pronunciation, adding layers for those learning or interested in the Chinese language and culture.
I also love this book because my beloved bearded dragon, Gidget, makes a guest appearance!

About the Author
Eugenia Chu is an attorney, turned stay-at-home mom, turned writer. She lives on a magical beach in Miami with her husband and son, Brandon, who is the inspiration for her stories. She enjoys reading, writing, traveling, yoga, and drinking too much coffee. She has been a presenter at numerous schools, libraries, and book festivals.
When Brandon was very little, the author couldn’t find children’s storybooks to read to him which touched upon Chinese culture and included some Chinese (Mandarin) words to teach and/or reinforce his Chinese vocabulary, so she started writing her own.
Her first book, Brandon Makes Jiǎo Zi (餃子) is about a little Chinese-American boy named Brandon who gets a surprise visit from his grandma from China, Pó Po (婆婆). While Brandon and Pó Po (婆婆) are making Chinese dumplings, called jiǎo zi (餃子).
Brandon Goes to Beijing (北京) is her second “Brandon” story and first children’s chapter book. In this story, Brandon and his cousins are on a trip to visit their grandparents in Beijing, China! While bonding with family, practicing Chinese, touring historic sites, and feasting on local dishes, Brandon thinks he sees a tiny panda. However, every time he gets close, the panda disappears! Is Brandon imagining this small creature, or is it real? Will Brandon find out before he has to fly back home?
