The ancient Vietnamese folktale of a toad's struggle with the King of Heaven to make it rain on his parched lily pad

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 4 Realizing that the drought will soon destroy all life on Earth, Toad journeys to the Emperor of Heaven to ask for rain. On his way, he is joined by Bees, Rooster and Tiger. Confronting an unconcerned emperor, Toad finally makes his request known, with the help of his companions. The Emperor of Heaven remedies the drought with rain, calling Toad "Uncle," a title of great respect and affection in Vietnam. The illustrations differ from Lee's previous titles. Instead of subtle pastels and subdued motion, she employs pure, vibrant colors to support the energetic yet stylized actions of her characters: Rooster's feathers flame, and the Emperor sits on a golden throne in a hall of royal purple. A longer, more intense (although also more violent) version of this tale can be found in Vo-Dinh's The Toad Is the Emperor's Uncle: Animal Folktales of Viet Nam (Doubleday, 1970; o.p.). Lee's version, with its arresting illustrations and striking colors, is suitable for telling aloud to primary grade children. A valuable purchase for an existing collection of world folk tales.
