9780993225345: Phoenix Song

Arohan is desperate for a guitar. What eight year old boy isn't? So when Arohan's grandmother gives him a plain old bamboo flute for his birthday, he is understandably a little upset. But the xiao is no ordinary flute. An instrument steeped in the myths and legends of China, the xiao has its own special magic, as Arohan is soon to discover. When his brothers go missing on the slopes of the hill behind their home in Malaysia, Arohan must ensure they return safe and sound. But does he have what it takes to placate the guardian of the bamboo grove and summon the mythical phoenix? A touching and courageous story of a young boy's love for his family and the magical things that can happen when you listen to your heart.

About the Author:

Tutu Dutta-Yean is a raconteur of tales and the keeper of old knowledge and wisdom. She was born in India but grew up in Malaysia. As an undergraduate, she was awarded a scholarship by Japan Airlines to attend Summer School at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan. Japan's rich cultural heritage and folklore treasure trove was an eye-opening experience for her. She is the author of several books, including Timeless Tales of Malaysia, Eight Treasures of the Dragon, and the middle grade series The Jugra Chronicles. In addition to her writing, Tutu has presented the paper 'Adapting Asian Folktales for Children's and YA Literature' at the Asian Festival of Children's Content in Singapore 2013, sponsored by the Singapore Book Council, and has also been one of the judges for the Scholastic Asia Young Writers Award 2014.

Review:

'A wind of music and brotherly love takes us soaring through the pages of Phoenix Song. Children everywhere will see their own talents, disappointments, and heroes' journeys mirrored in Arohan's adventure.' - Mitali Perkins, award-winning author of Tiger Boy; 'The colours of the phoenix as it flies over the forest are truly amazing... The lushess of the forest comes across and the depiction of the bamboo closing in over Arohan is truly threatening... This is an excellent introduction to traditional Malaysian stories in a modern setting.' - The School Librarian, Vol. 64, No. 3; 'An evocative "song" that echoes in the heart.' - Mahtab Narsimhan, award-winning author of The Tiffin; 'Phoenix Song is a beautifully-crafted picture book that will have children gripped by its blend of music, magic and contemporary reality as they get right behind its young hero, whom they will completely take to their hearts.' - Marjorie Coughlan, Mirrors, Windows, Doors; 'Phoenix Song started life as a version of a Malay folktale of Buluh Perindu (literally: yearning or sighing bamboo). Given a contemporary setting, this has become a story about family and courage that will appeal to children of all ages. A lovely book that deserves to be shared again and again.' - North Somerset Teachers' Book Award; 'It's so simple, yet beautiful... It will inspire children to realise that they all have the potential to be heroes if they use their talents wisely.' - Brigitte Rozario author of popular blog, Thots n Tots
