This felicitous retelling of a Chinese folktale is about a young hunter, Hai Li Bu, and the pact he makes with the Dragon King of the Sea, during a time of drought and famine. What give the book its great distinction are the spare ink illustrations with subtle color washes by illustrator Ed Young. The reader/viewer has the sense of having been transported to ancient China and seeing the story unfold through the eyes of a gifted Chinese scroll painter. A rare work of picture-book art.
