We are sending our copy of the book to our grandson to show him what another eight year old can do in hopes it will inspire him.

I have a question.  Is Wang Yani still alive?
Anyway, I love the article about her.  I am going to dress up like her for an art show.

MY HERO staff: Yes, Wang Yani is still alive.
