Tasting delicious fruit at the market! A sky-high gondola ride to the tea mountains in Maokong! A dinner of soup dumplings and hotpot! These are just some of the classic Taipei scenes captured in this vibrant book about Taiwan’s capital city.
Hey Taipei was written by Kathy Cheng, a Taipei-based writer also known as Tricky Taipei. She developed the story after she couldn’t find a cute picture book about Taipei in English to give to friends overseas. Then after having her baby daughter in October 2017, Kathy found a second reason to finish the project. She wanted her daughter Claudia to see herself in the book, having the same adventures and feeling proud of where she’s from.
Hey Taipei entered the world as a crowdfunding campaign in December 2018 and received hundreds of orders from all around the globe. Whether you have a personal connection to Taiwan or not, the book is an engaging way to learn about Taiwanese culture. Come take a trip to Taipei with us!
Hey Taipei的作者是Kathy Cheng，一名目前定居台北的旅外部落客（Tricky Taipei）。因為找不到關於台北的有趣繪本送給海外的朋友，她開始有了編寫這本書的想法。2017年10月，她的女兒出生，她更多了一個實現這本書的重要理由。她希望女兒Claudia能在繪本中看見自己，能參與這趟旅程並以自己的出生地為傲。
