This is the second book featuring Nina and her Aunt’s magical travelling spice shed which can take her anywhere in the world. In this tale, Nina travels to China with her friend Lee to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Lee’s parents. As the two friends follow the trail of a mysterious old Chinese riddle, they explore China-its sights, sounds and smells, meet a kung fu master, learn how to use chopsticks, and visit the terracotta warriors where an exciting conclusion reunites Lee with his parents. A fast pace ensures readers will be eager to turn the pages and follow Nina’s adventures, and the setting is portrayed simply enough for readers for whom China may be an unfamiliar place, while at the same time giving the reader a strong sense of a different place and culture. Many pages have black and white sketched line drawings to supplement the text and there is a fact section at the end with information on chopstick etiquette, the Chinese Zodiac and a recipe for the buns mentioned in the story.
