From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- This memorable story tells of a young girl's loyalty and courage. Long ago, ``parents wanted only sons'' who would look after them when they grew old. A village doctor ``cursed'' with five daughters is unjustly accused of and jailed for letting an influential patient die. While her older sisters weep, Ti Ying resolves to help. She writes a letter to the king, asking to be taken prisoner in her father's place. The king is so moved that he frees her father and presents Ti Ying with a dress. The people no longer believe that only sons are of value. Va admirably conveys the ancient Chinese culture; his paintings evoke traditional art but possess a vitality and charm all their own. At first glance, they seem childlike, but closer examination reveals a sophisticated and mature mastery of style. Unusual colors--lime green, orange, and red--work together harmoniously; the flat, dry look of the images adds a restrained element. On the right-hand page, the text is well integrated with the illustrations; Chinese characters appear above the English text. On the left, a small painting sums up the action. The somewhat tiny pictures may dictate that this be used in small groups or one-on-one. However they experience it, children will be entertained and inspired by Ti Ying's courageous story. --Denise Anton Wright, Library Book Selection Service, Inc., Bloomington, IL
