More About the Author
What inspired him to write Into the Tub!? First of all, his son has a superpower: the superscream- known to have caused the complete destruction of entire dinner conversations. His daughter also has a superpower- the all-the-powers-in-the-world power, which sounds a little dubious but which she assures her father is both very real and the most awesomest superpower. His wife, another nearly famous superhero, wields the fearsome super-editor power, capable of smashing through the most pretentious prose and travelloguey narrative alike.
Mr. Hu is currently a rocket scientist in Huntsville, AL.
Top Customer Reviews
As a parent, I did appreciate the moral to the story, of being kind and helpful to those in need, even if some are unkind to you. This book is a delight! Thanks YU NO HU! A pleasure to read!
A previous reviewer compared Yu No Hu's writing to that of Terry Pratchett. I think that is only part of the story. In the description of the childrens' parents' and life, Yu No Hu is definitely channeling Roald Dahl. In the relationship between the children and in the relationship between their world and ours I see an homage to C.S. Lewis and Narnia.
Hu writes successfully: my children, particularly my seven year old, have asked to go back to reading "Into the Tub" many times. Because of the kindness built into the book, I'm happy to have them do it.
Very fast paced story, easy to read, with a great sense of humor I think children and the parents reading to them will love.
I am looking forward to reading other works by Yu No Hu. ;)
