Ever noticed that the Chinese mainland looks like a giant rooster? Wang Qicheng has, and shares this—among hundreds of other quirky reflections—in his “Big Book of China,” a collection of illustrations and text walking the reader through 5,000 years of Chinese history and culture. From ancient civilizations and traditional medicines to modern technologies and entertainment, the cartoonist shows a real passion and enthusiasm for the culture. It’s short, easy-to-read, and is a book you can dive into when you have a spare moment and end up engrossed for ages. At the very least, it’s something great to read in the bathroom! – K.B.
