A plate illustrating Little Leap Forward in his mother's kitchen for the award winning children's novel 'Little Leap Forward' by Guo Yue.  Set during the tumultuous Great Leap Forward in China, I had to research typical Hutong kitchens and kitchen paraphernalia of the times.

Published by Barefoot Books.
In 2014 'Little Leap Forward' was included in the 'Diverse Voices List' - the fifty best children's books celebrating cultural diversity in the UK since 1950.
