Infatuated with Peking Opera C05-080

 

 

Cover Description: In 1937, a 9 year old girl was sent to live with her grandma and uncle near Nanjing, China. With the Japanese invasion looming in the background, a famed Peking Opera singer arrived in town with his opera company, and the little girl grew fasinated with Peking Opera...for a brief moment in her life, all were forgotten about the war, and life seemed happy and normal...until the bombs came down from the sky, and the little girl and her family had to flee. This book features breath-taking illustrations, and paints a touching war time story through the eyes of a child.

京戲大名角到「我」家來借宿啦!小女孩第一次親身感受到京戲文化,被它深深迷醉。可是,戰火臨近,演出縮短,戰爭奪走了百姓有京戲的生活和文化......翻开《迷戏》这本书,扑面而来的是一股浓郁的﹁夜泊秦淮近酒家﹂的江南气息,映入眼帘的是淡淡清雅的游刃于石青底色之上的﹁烟笼寒水月笼沙﹂的轻描素写。从书的前页我们便跟随作者如同踏上了一条吱哑吱哑的木船,在摇摇摆摆的林荫下,穿过潺潺流水的水乡,来到了主人公的舅舅和外婆家里……作者以一个小女孩的视角和第一人称的叙事方式,单线淡色的图画,让我们伴随着她一起,追索那已暗淡了的和一去不复返的童年往事和回忆。”
