Editorial Reviews

"When Hong, brave and cunning, determines to take his intellectually brilliant if impractical older brother, Chen, to the provincial capital for the scholars' examination, the two boys find themselves caught up in the tapestry of landscape and events of sixteenth century China...This is tremendous adventure." -Starred, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
