You Can’t See Me is a Chinese-English bilingual picture book jointly
painted and written by Chinese and foreign authors. It tells the story
of Wiffle’s first arrival in a strange environment and the process of
integration with the community and others. Through the game of hideand-
seek, it reflects Wiffle’s initial hiding, maladjustment as well as final
integration and happiness. The visual language of the picture is rich, and
the typical Chinese symbols and elements such as dragons, kites and
stone lions are skillfully used. Through the ingenious design of pictures,
the picture book guides young readers to find out the girl hidden in
the book, which is very interesting to read. The rhythmic sentence
patterns and the concise and idiomatic language enable children to
feel the different charm of Chinese and English. Imaginative stories
and interesting interactions arouse children’s curiosity, increase their
concentration and cultivate their abilities to fit into a new environment.
