Review:
Aside from having the same name as the classic book by Doris Gates, which is still in print, this story of Kung Shi Fair, her possessive father, and Chang the Good is also classic. Told in the mode of a folktale, the story is tragic yet satisfying. The Oriental illustrations are humorous and apt.
