Review Text

One of three original stories written by Bateson-Hill using a traditional folk story style. Each story is based on a traditional craft, and this one set in China, focuses on Chinese paper cutting. Lao Lao becomes famous for her beautiful paper cuts. When the Emperor hears about her skills he has her locked in a tower and demands that she fills a treasure chest with paper 'jewels'. However, the greed and cruelty of the Emperor arouses the Ice Dragon of the mountain, with spectacular consequences. This beautifully written and illustrated story combines many traditional Chinese themes woven around the art of paper cutting. There are templates and instructions to inspire children to make their own paper cuts as well as a fascinating introduction to the formation of Chinese characters. (Kirkus UK)show more
