Language #29: Chinese!

Nancy Drew has FINALLY been published in Chinese - it's only the world's most spoken language, after all!  The first 6 titles from the Girl Detective series have been released so far and the publisher's name seems to be Children Fun Publishing.  Previously the only known books by Carolyn Keene in Chinese were a couple of titles from the defunct River Heights series of the 1980s.

The books are a nicely laminated paperback with quite a few black and white illustrations inside.  The illustration style is similar to the manga/anime look of the Japanese books, but all artwork is original. 

I believe the book to the left is "Lights, Camera" where Nancy is menaced by a mountain lion.  I think it's funny that something got lost in translation, and it's a Lion lion pictured instead!
