Description
Mr. Kang loves to paint Chinese poems, and he loves his hua-mei bird, which he takes in its cage to the park every Sunday. But his grandson doesn't think a free man should keep a caged bird. So begins this story of China and America, of cages and freedom, of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in New York City's Chinatown.
