Belle Yang

Belle Yang’s first book, Baba: A Return to China Upon My Father’s Shoulders, is an enchanting and beautiful work. Her vibrant illustrations brighten the stories inspired by her father’s boyhood memories of growing up in Manchuria. At first the characters of these stories became the subjects of her art, but Yang felt she needed to do more than paint to express their voices. So the painter became a storyteller and the paintings and the stories flow together to create this extraordinary book.
