Acerca de


One day when the warlord is away, traders come and take Chuan from the palace, only to become lost in the desert. Chuan's carved wooden fish works as a compass and saves the day.

From the Inside Flap:

Working as an apprentice for one of the warlord's artists, Chuan is in the palace one day when a bearded trader from another land bursts into the courtyard with complaints against the local merchants. Chuan tries to help, and for his trouble, both he and the artist are kidnapped and taken on a long journey through the desert. A sandstorm rises up, blocking out the sun they used to know their direction, and the fierce winds blow sand over the trail. It seems that all are lost in the desert with little food or water, miles from civilization.

Fortunately, Chuan had seen the carved fish the artist made, floating in a bowl of water, so he knew that the fish he carried in his pocket was more than a pretty toy: when placed in a bowl of water, it always pointed south. How could that be? Learn how Chuan and the artist made a compass and earned their freedom.
