My Review: A little girl watches as her mother mold a pottery bowl. On the bowl, she painted a little pig naming it after her daughter Piggy. The sight of her daughter Piggy makes her heart leap with joy. Piggy asks her mother to paint a tree of fresh fruit on the bowl. Her mother added a few more things on the bowl like melons, flowers, butterfly to make it pretty; it represented the joyful meeting of living things.
A great collection of porcelain bowls painted with piggy on them that were used by the emperors of China, called the Qing can be found in the Palace Museum in Beijing, China. The bowl of Happiness is one of four books. Illustration by Alice Mak helps bring the story to life with its watercolor feel.
