Taiwanese artist Chih-Yuan Chen is the author and illustrator of the children's books On My Way to Buy Eggs and Guji Guji, both of which have been translated and published in the United States. On My Way to Buy Eggs follows a young girl named Shau-yu, as she goes on an errand for her father. Her walk quickly becomes an exciting, eye opening experience, as she views the world through a blue marble, discovers a pair of glasses that make everything appear blurry, and follows a cat's shadow. Gillian Engberg, writing in Booklist, praised the book's "beautifully drawn scenes," and dubbed the story "joyful" and "understated." Marge Loch-Wouters of School Library Journal wrote that "This universal tribute to the power of a child's imagination will strike a familiar chord with dreamers everywhere."

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
