`This is the story of Dragon Mountain, Phoenix Mountain and a shining lake. It beings thousands of years ago, in China..... Long, long ago, a dragon lived beside a magic river. A dark forest grew on the other side of the river. Deep inside the forest lived a phoenix.....'
Daily they go about their independent business until they meet on an island in the river.....and find a shiny pebble. But this is no ordinary pebble as the pair find out....and when it attracts the Queen of Heaven, things change!
`....`The Dragon and the Phoenix' is based on `The Bright Pearl', a folktale from China. In Chinese stories, dragons and phoenixes are often shown together. Chinese dragons have lots of magical powers and can even fly without wings.'
I bought this one for my 4 years old daughter who is learning to read. The text is not exactly for the very beginners, but she enjoyed listening to the story and watching the beautiful vibrant pictures.
