The Lost Umbrella of Kim Chu

Our rating: ****

Kim Chu takes her father’s special big, black umbrella with her to the library, though her grandmother warned her not to. Kim’s father’s umbrella was presented to him when he won the contest of drawing a dragon. The bamboo handle screws off and inside is an intricate scroll, that says that Mr. Lin Chu (Kim’s father) is the winner. When Kim Chu accidentally leaves the umbrella at the library and quickly returns to find it gone, it’s an adventure/mystery for both Kim Chu and Mae Lee.

A pretty good book, in my opinion. It’s a fairly short book, though not a little picture book. But it’s not as large as The Mysterious Island (which I haven’t read). Enjoy!
