Embark on an unforgettable time-travelling journey through Chinese history.

This beautifully illustrated children’s history book spans 2,500 years and more than a thousand miles along China’s Grand Canal. With stunning, panoramic illustrations and lively, engaging text, China Through Time brings key periods and turning points in the canal’s history to life.

Cutaway views show the inside of buildings and introduce children to important places, characters, and events - from humble workers to mighty emperors, and from floods and wars to life in bustling ports and modern cities.

Children will also love searching for the mischievous time-travelling cat, Lihua, who appears in each of the artworks.

Perfect for parents and children to pore over together, China Through Time makes a gorgeous gift or collector’s item. Fun, interactive, and packed with details, it vividly presents Chinese history to children as they have never seen it before.
