This book was suggested by a Taoist tale in the Book of Lieh Tzu, c. 350 B. C. The illustrator, Ronni Solbert, based her art work from scenes in the frescoes of the Tun-huang caves in western China. It is a wonderful introduction for children just becoming familiar with oriental cultures.
I keep it next to a copy of Shel Silverstein's "The Missing Piece".
