I Am Hua Mulan
Original text by Qin Wenjun, Illustrations by Yu Rong, Translated by Helen Wang
In my dream I am dressed as a warrior. I have long eyelashes. My hair ribbons flutter in the breeze. When I draw my dream, I see her… I see Hua Mulan.
I see Hua Mulan, where the lands are gold and the skies are blue. This is her home. Her family is happy here, but they are not safe. The Rouran army is coming with swords and horses! Mulan must take her father’s place and ride into battle. Mighty like the cold white mountains, Mulan looks like a warrior, thinks like a warrior, and fights like one too.
Over 1500 years later, my floor is gold and my blankets are blue. I am a girl and I am strong. Who am I?
I am Hua Mulan! is an adventure for English and Chinese readers alike. Follow this bilingual tale to the end for a special surprise! The famous Chinese poem, “Song of Mulan”, is fully translated and awaiting your discovery.
