From Our Editors

This brilliant picture book recounts a Chinese version of Beauty and the Beast. It is the story of a poor farmer with seven daughters. Seven – the youngest, cleverest and bravest daughter – promises to marry a fearsome dragon in exchange for her father’s life when it threatens to kill him. But appearances can be deceiving, as The Dragon Prince goes on to show.
