"A Classic in the Making",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pearl in the Grass: A Story from China (Paperback)
An old Chinese folk tale beautifully written and illustrated. A young boy struggling to feed himself and his mother in time of drought, greedy robbers, nosey neighbours, something quite magical and a surprising ending all combine to produce something really special. This is funny, charming, thought provoking and hugely entertaining. As another reviewer has already put it: A Classic in the Making.
