The Garden of Empress Cassia
Mimi is 12-years-old and experiences bullying at school as well as embarrassment about her Chinese background and her family’s traditions that make her different. A sympathetic teacher, aware of her artistic talent, gives her magical pastels lending this story a fantasy element. Understanding a child’s difficulties in embracing two cultures underlies the story.
