Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Fall 2004)
A dragon king helps his nine immortal sons turn what on the surface seem like indulgent proclivities into useful talents. The illustrations use fluid, energetic brush strokes and cut-paper images. The tale makes a connection between folklore and culture, but despite its graceful execution, the concept will likely make the book too sophisticated for the traditional picture book audience.
