Finding Your Book in a Foreign Language

It’s always fun to find your book translated into a language you don’t speak, even a little bit. Leaping Lemmings has been translated into German (my great-grandparents were fluent) and the Queen’s English (always fun to look for different spellings of my American tongue), but seeing it in Mandarin is a blast. I don’t speak a word of it, yet I was able to follow along because the artwork (thanks to Nicola Slater) does an amazing job telling the story, too. So, if you’re looking for something fun to do, check out Leaping Lemmings in Chinese. The words might be Mandarin, but the squeaks and squeals are universal.


(Special Thanks to Sanmin in Taiwan for publishing my book and creating such a wonderful trailer. It’s like having my own animated short!)
