Review


Aesop Accolades; American Folklore Society, 1997.

School Library Journal: Authentic in art and text, and building to a satisfying conclusion, the book is a useful addition where Chinese stories are needed.

Booklist: The artwork, which utilizes Chinese character writing, bright colors, and traditional designs, adds a feel of authenticity to the folktale. Czernecki positions text and illustrations over borders of bright yellow embroidered dragon motifs.

Publishers Weekly: Graciously setting the scene for his concise retelling of a dramatic legend, Czernecki’s arresting art imaginatively conveys the grandeur of the court of Yongle, the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty . . . Throughout, the visual rhythms propel the reader: sometimes text faces illustrative panels, and sometimes both pages of the spread feature only art or design elements. A memorable and ambient offering.
