" Just read this to my kids today and they loved it! " Aubrey said.
"I really liked this retelling of a Chinese folk tale. It centers on a young boy who thrusts himself into continuous work so that his mother may weave and keep the most beautiful brocade in the (barren and gray) world. In so doing, he unknowingly gives himself the strength to successfully battle the goddess who keeps all the bounty and beauty of the earth in her realm. When he battles to retrieve the brocade, all the plants and animals escape from it to populate his world. I loved the illustrations, which gave the book an old-timey feel.
My daughter was not quite as enthralled, and didn't go back to it. Maybe next year." Nathan Willard said.
