I Won’t Go to China by Enda Wyley

Published by The O’Brien Press, 2009

Why would Chang Ming not want to visit China, the birthplace of his parents? Surely joining in the Chinese New Year celebrations would be the most exciting thing ever. But Chang Ming has his reasons for not wanting to visit his beloved Grandma in Beijing. He has been picked for the school football team here in Ireland.

Mrs Pepper, Chang Ming’s class teacher has an idea that might work and Chang Ming is about to become a reporter as well as a vital player on the school football team!

I Won’t Go to China is one of four books published to date in the O’Brien Press Bridges series. Bridges is a new series of multicultural books for children celebrating Ireland’s ethnic and cultural diversity. Entertaining stories that are very much enhanced by unique and engaging illustrations make these hardback books an ideal Christmas presents for children aged 6 to 9.

According to the publishers, Bridges “can help children with their understanding of different cultures and of the many different experiences of living in Ireland today in a fun and enjoyable way”
