A Monkey In The Central Kingdom by Author – Carl Aass

As a Baby Boomer Travel, Health & Wellness Blogger and avid reader, I’ve included a book review segment to my blog. My most recent read is the featured author’s latest publication called …

πŸ“˜ A Monkey In The Central Kingdom. πŸ“˜

I received a request in my email inbox recently from; πŸ“š DC Canada Education Publishing, asking if I would be interested in reading and reviewing the author’s recently published book.

China has always been an intriguing country to visit, with so much history. I’ve had family members visit in years past, having visited a number of historical sites including; The Great Wall of China.

One day, I would like to visit and explore this country, hopefully when tensions around the globe ease and become safe for everyone once again.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to read and to offer a personal review of this inspiring publication from the book’s author; Carl Aass.
