Guai Wu. The  Chinese Elf

Guai Wu. The Chinese Elf


Guai Wu looks different from other children. Because of this, they shun him and hurl ugly names and unkind words at him. One day, Guai Wu met a seamstress who took him in, and offered him food and shelter. Then, mysteriously, beautiful embroidered
items started appearing in her home. Does Guai Wu have anything to do with them?

And does he finally find acceptance for who he is?
