Review of Lon Po Po


lonpopo2 I read Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story From China, translated and illustrated by Ed Young, for homework.  It is about a mom leaving three kids at home to see her po po, also known as grandma, and the three kids having to outsmart a wolf.  It is the Chinese version of Red Riding Hood.

This is a good book for learning about Panel Drawings because the illustrations are all panel drawings.

I made a panel drawing by drawing a picture, cutting it into three pieces, one wide and two narrow, and outlining the pieces with a red crayon.  Then, I taped the pieces onto a big piece of red construction paper.
