Description

Join the Binkertons — twins Josh and Emma and their little sister Libby — as they return to the Good Times Travel Agency and end up knee-deep in an ancient Chinese rice paddy!

Kids will learn about Chinese society, inventions, medicine, the Silk Road, the Great Wall, nomadic warriors and much more. They’ll love the book’s contemporary comic-book look, while parents, teachers and librarians will appreciate the well-researched story line and solid factual information.
