Flying Stars



Go Boating (River Adventure)




Vol. 2 of Da Wu’s Explorer Series.


Da Wu and his big brother went boating. Along the way, they saw silhouettes of birds, deer, and crocodiles from far away, but all these things turned out to be water plants, wood, and rock. Da Wu wondered if there is a lake monster under the water.
On the way back, all the animals showed up from the fog. And little readers could find the lake monster for Da Wu.
This is an adventurous river trip with visual illusions. What you see may not be true.
