Communication between an ancient female hero and a girl in modern times.

In this book, the classical story of Mulan is retold through the perspective of a girl in present day. One day, the girl had a long dream about Hua Mulan, a famous female solider in Chinese history. She shared all the experiences with Mulan together. Like Mulan, she becomes a brave, strong, and goodhearted girl. She becomes Mulan in another era.

With more than ten massive fold pages and large-scale scenes, the ancient and modern settings echo to each other.

There are some little secrets hidden in the drawings, waiting to be discovered.
