The old mother's obsession with the palace seemed unhealthy rather ......[Read More]

Latest Reviews: I think I would have rated this higher if I had not read it shortly after The Faithful Friend. The Chang's retelling of a boy who works for his family is heartfelt and moving. There are some class issues that are detail with. A bit at the end of the book gives infromatio......[Read More]

The illustrations are wonderful and the story portrays a struggle of good vs. evil that is easy to understand. There were a few parts that concerned me: at one point in the story, Shell cuts off a gh......[Read More]
