After dreaming of becoming a rich prince, poor fisherman Toshi discovers a box filled with strange and wonderful things, but his discovery rouses a sleeping sea dragon.

From Publishers Weekly:

Newcomer Galchutt has concocted a fresh and quirky tale about "a young fisherman named Toshi" who one day discovers a box floating in the water. Opening it, he discovers four colored wooden balls, a book of magic tricks and a jester's costume: " 'It looks like magic!' Toshi thought," and proceeds to wreak havoc with his booty. He drops the wooden balls in the water by mistake, thus awakening "Xanchi, the sleeping dragon of the sea." Only through his subsequent quick-wittedness and rapidly learned prestidigitation does he outsmart the fearsome beast and win plaudits for his bravery. (In a particularly playful touch, Xanchi is tickled into submission by "thousands of butterflies.") While Galchutt's fairy-tale phraseology will find favor with adventure-minded youngsters, it is the extravagant artwork here that truly sparkles: executed in glossy hues and laden with Asian motifs, these paintings tend occasionally to upstage the story. Kids will nonetheless enjoy the many intricate details, such as those in a spread depicting an army summoned by Toshi consisting of only "stone statues and snowmen" (the boy's magic, it seems, needs practice). A graphic treat with a somewhat less tantalizing story. Ages 4-8.
