Renowned Chinese children's writer Zhang Zhilu has published a sequel to his book "Wonder Boy."
In the new book, the lead characters are now adults.
"In the sequel, I actually depict a family of three leading their ordinary happy life. I also want to give special importance to their approaches to tackle the difficulties they have encountered."
"Wonder Boy 2" has been published by the China Children's Press & Publication Group, with illustrations from a German illustrator Dirk Steinhoefl .
Li Xueqian, the head of the publishing company, said "what's the most valuable part in our life which has been changed by modern sci-tech? This is an issue worth thinking about, not only for children, but also for the entire society. I think Zhang Zhilu's new book provides some insight into this issue."
The original "Wonder Boy" was adapted into a film in 1987 which became a major hit in China.
