Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ancient Fantasy A light, whimsical fantasy set in ancient China. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fantasy This book was fantastic. I normally don't read fantasy, but I had to read it for a university course (Fantasy, Myth and Language). I must say, of all the books we have read so far, this one was my favorite. I really enjoyed the humor, as well as the interesting characters... Great story. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read something different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A China that Never Was A fantastical romp with Number Ten Ox and Master Li through a China filled with myths and legends, tied together into a mystery worthy of the Gods. With equal parts of fact and fiction encased in poetry and hauntingly beautiful imagery, truly this is a China that never was but should have been.
