Acerca de


A young weaver in twelfth-century China saves her people from drought and foreign invasion by weaving the imperial dragon's robe.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- An original story using traditional folk motifs, greatly enriched by stunning artwork. Kwan Yin saves China by weaving a dragon robe for the emperor to placate the rain dragon who has been angered by the emperor's false ministers. Faithful Kwan Yin not only observes their treachery, but she also steadfastly weaves the dragon robe in the face of all danger until it is finished and taken by the rain dragon who, in return, destroys the enemy. Lattimore uses traditional Chinese designs and colors in picturing an imaginative phoenix, a ferocious tiger, and a magnificent dragon. The text appears as scrolls on each page with textured, inset, seemingly woven scenes at the tops of many of them, adding to the visual narration. The story is less impressive and clear than the paintings; its convoluted and sometimes confusing plot leaves readers with unanswered questions concerning the characters' motivation and rewards. Still, readers may find the theme of treachery punished and faithfulness recognized exciting and satisfying and will be captivated by the illustrations. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C.
