About this title


A young man named Yee-Lee goes on a journey to the Wise Man of Kun-lun Mountain to discover the reason for his poverty.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Long ago in China there lived a man named Yee-Lee, a poor farmer who never had enough to eat in spite of his hard work. He decides to travel to the Wise Man of Kun-lun Mountain to seek advice. Along his journey he encounters three people who implore him to ask questions for them as well. When Yee-Lee reaches his destination, the Wise Man will only allow him to ask an odd number of questions. Yee-Lee then sets aside his own request to obtain answers for his new friends. As he returns home, the three answers each benefit him in turn; in the end Yee-Lee has learned that helping others can bring its own rewards. The story is an interesting variation on an old folklore motif, and the illustrations have a luminous quality with strong line and muted colors. There is plenty of action in the drawings for use with a group reading and much detail to please children reading alone. A well-designed book with a solid story, this is certain to become an old favorite. --Connie C. Rockman, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
