Mr. Young shows once again what can be accomplished by a gifted artist with only a few simple strokes of the brush. This fanciful story tells the tale of how a wise father turned his sons’s various troubling gifts to practical use and explains why the images of the Dragon King’s sons continue to decorate Chinese objects today. It’s a very enjoyable tale and a good introduction for younger readers to certain aspects of Chinese culture.
