My obsessed-with-all-things-Chinese niece really enjoyed this Chinese legend. It's pretty tough to beat a story that feeds her obsession and
shows a strong female in a non-traditional role.
There were lots of words and concepts in this story that were new to my niece. She's in second grade, and while I certainly don't mind explaining meanings to her, I think this book might have been aimed at slightly older kids. I don't think this book is going to appeal to huge masses of children, but we liked it.
