WHEN I WAS ... is a series of early readers that I illustrated for China's children's book market. The first three books When I was four, When I was five, and When I was six were published winter 2019. Each book consists a collection of short and funny stories about a little boy name Xiaoxiao, whose dream is becoming a brave guy like Fireman Sam.

I used traditional watercolor with a little gouache and colored pencils while illustrating.
