<em>Meide Shijie </em>is the Chinese language edition of <em>Tales from Pavlysh: A World of Beauty</em>. It contains 19 little tales from Sukhomlinsky's <em>Ethics Anthology</em>, a collection of over 500 stories designed to promote thought about values. The stories have been beautifully illustrated by students from Ukraine and Belarus. All the stories in this short selection are about beauty, and how people perceive it and relate to it. The colourful illustrations are a feature of this book. Over 2000 pictures were entered in a competition to illustrate the 19 stories, and the pictures chosen for this book are exceptional. The students were asked to show children in Australia the beauty of the Ukrainian countryside, and the resulting pictures speak for themselves.
