    About this book

The series Graded Readers for Chinese Language Learners is composed of 50 books, divided into three subseries, namely folktales, literary stories and historical stories, corresponding to Levels 1-3 respectively. The businessman Lü Buwei met a man called Yiren in Handan, capital of Zhao. Yiren was a prince of Qin, who was held hostage in Handan and lived a poor life there. Lü Buwei saw an opportunity to make a deal with Yiren. He decided to invest all his money on Yiren to help him become the king of Qin.

Yiren’s grandfather, King Zhaoxiang of Qin, had more than 20 sons. Yiren’s father also had over 20 sons, and Yiren was the second. The chances seemed very slim for Yiren, who didn’t matter at all among all these sons and grandsons, to become the king of Qin. However, Lü Buwei succeeded in making Yiren the king and he himself the prime minister.
