Editorial Reviews

"When the Chinese Emperor announces an unusual test to choose an heir--the child who raises the best flowers from a seed given by the Emperor will be his successor--Ping, unaccountably, is unable to get his seed to sprout. . . . A lovely story, well told and most attractively presented." -Kirkus Reviews, pointer"A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as the simplicity of its story." -School Library Journal
