Mei Li, honored as one of the first Caldecott winners, tells the story of a young Chinese girl out to prove to her brother that anything he can do, she can do better. Thomas Handforth's work at the time challenged not only traditional gender roles, but introduced readers to a culture many were previously unfamiliar with.
