But dozens of small yet significant cultural differences caught them bu surprise!Three years(and numerous faux pas, misunderstandings and misinterpretations)later, they have written this book to help readers benefit from their experiences. Their stories explain both the what and thewhy of Chinese customs, so that readers can better undersand and appreciate the Chinese way of thinking and living.

Their noise and play were constant feature of life, they cluttered up streets and houses and haunted historical documentation of the time. At one end of the spectrum they underpinned the Victorian ideal of the family, at the other, they provided cheap, pliable labour for the Industrial Revolution. There were enormous differences between children of different classes, ages, sexes and localities, but even under the harshest conditions children managed to inherit, create and pass on their own stories, songs, street-games and mythologies." -- from the rear panel blurb. This is a study of children of the 19th century. Creasing to the book corners and reading creases to the backstrip.
