George loves steamed roll with beef filling, especially when watching a film. Steamed roll with beef filling is scrumptious, so George has already eaten every one he had. But where to go for new ones? Watching a film without eating his favourite steamed rolls isn't half as nice. 

Amusing novel for starters, after only a few months of Chinese. Contains many repetitions of high frequency words and simple grammatical structures. The characters are spaced to facilitate reading for beginners. Names are written in English.

Information for teachers

This simple Chinese reader is intended for new readers of Mandarin Chinese. In contrast to children's picture books, which are intended for native speakers, the Zhongwen Bu Mafan! series focuses on the highest-frequency words in the language, providing beginning readers with an engaging and accessible way to strengthen their reading skills in Chinese.
