Hey Taipei is a rhyming picture book about a little girl's exciting first trip to Taipei.

Tasting delicious fruit at the market! A sky high gondola ride to Maokong! A dinner of soup dumplings and hotpot! These are just some of the classic Taipei scenes captured in this colorful picture book about Taipei.

Hi, I’m Kathy, the writer of Hey Taipei

After I moved back to Taiwan in 2014, I shopped around for a cute picture book about Taipei in English but I couldn't find one. There were Chinese-language versions, but they didn’t have the same spirit of fun and adventure. So I thought, hey, I’m a writer. Why not write one myself? 

I wrote Hey Taipei about two years ago but didn’t know what to do with it. Then I had my baby daughter in October 2017 and suddenly the project became about her. I want Claudia to see herself in the book, having the same adventures and feeling proud she’s from Taipei. 

I’m working with Garlic Crush Studios, a Taipei-based studio and publisher. They believe children’s books should be fun and inspire readers to be creative. If possible, they should make kids laugh and smile. I completely agree!

So why an English-language picture book about Taipei? Well, there are a few reasons. First, a book like this in English is a way for young children everywhere to learn about Taipei and Taiwanese culture. Second, I feel it’s important for kids in Taiwan to see their own culture depicted in English. And third, the world needs more stories from the Taiwanese point of view!
