Synopsis: Yue, a Chinese merchant, discovers the wisdom in passing along kindness, when Bear Face, the huge hairy man Yue has befriended, saves his life.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-3-When Yue was young and not doing well in school, the smartest boy helped him out, saying, "Those at the top should help those at the bottom." Yue becomes a merchant when he grows up and he lives by those words, but never so much as when he leaves his drought-stricken home to find new customers. He encounters a huge man called Bear Face, who is an outcast among the people. Yue is kind to him; in return, Bear Face rescues Yue from drowning. Yue insists that Bear Face accompany him home, where the man reveals himself as a junior thunder lord and repays Yue's kindness with rain. Yep is a skillful storyteller, and his text is simple and effective. The characters are multifaceted; when Bear Face reveals his identity, he does not lose his sense of humor or his mild irreverence for convention. There are no surprises here. Anyone with a grasp of folk tale conventions knows that Bear Face isn't what he seems, but the tale remains satisfying. Van Nutt's cartoonlike pictures are bold and bright, with vibrant colors and nice details, and the cover illustration of Yue huddling in fear before the restored junior thunder lord is enticing. The quality of the artwork is undercut, however, by the lack of variation in the basic features of all but the main characters. While this detracts somewhat from the book, the story is well written and will appeal to a wide audience.
