Be Careful, Xiao Xin!

Alice Pung & Sher Rill Ng

Xiao Xin believes he is a red fire warrior but his family are always telling him to be careful. They believe the world is a dangerous place. Too dangerous for a little boy on his own.

They don’t understand what I can do!

They don’t understand what I can be!

Renowned storytellers Alice Pung and Sher Rill Ng bring to life a beautiful and tender story about learning to conquer your own fears – as a child, and as an adult.


Xiao Xin’s family is always telling him to be careful – always saying don’t jump too high, or run too fast, because the world is a dangerous place, and he might get hurt. They see Xiao Xin as a little boy, but Xiao Xin knows he is a Red Fire Warrior, brave and strong.

With breathtaking illustrations by Sher Rill Ng and text in both English and Mandarin, Be Careful, Xiao Xin! is a beautiful picture book about love and independence. Xiao Xin is determined to show his family that he is brave and strong and doesn’t need to be careful, but he learns that being brave sometimes means accepting help from those who love you. This gorgeous book is perfect for every child ready to assert their independence and show their inner brave Fire Warrior to the world. For ages 3+.
