The Emperor and the Kite

By Jane Yolen, Ed Young (Illustrator)

Djeow Seow was the smallest and least noticed of the emperor's children. When evil men come and snatch the emperor away, it is Djeow Seow with her kites who rescues him. Intricate paper cuttings provide great beauty and a sense of cultural heritage in this Japanese tale.
