Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A cautionary tale from ancient China--full of contemporary appeal. A greedy, selfish farmer gets up comeuppance at the August Moon Festival, when the kindly beggar priest whom he has slighted performs a magic trick that makes the farmer a laughingstock of the village. Full color.


Review:

"Johnson's ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations have the pale luster of Chinese silk; his sure rendering of animals, fruit, and flowers, and his use of flat space and elegant line, are inspired by Chinese painting and calligraphy. The book is as satisfying as unselfishness rewarded fully and meanness punished neatly."

Kirkus, 07/15/1997
