    COLORFUL AND CAPTIVATING FOR YOUNG READERS

    What child wouldn't be transfixed by Demi's illustrations? Her colors are bold, primary and her designs are intricate.. She is an artist with finely tuned sensibilities, one who translates the mundane into the magical. She captures the eye with the hues of her paints and attention to the most minute detail Not only have her books garnered a legion of fans but Demi has been awarded the Christopher Medal and one title was named Best Illustrated Book by the New York Times. With The Magic Pillow she reintroduces an ancient Chinese folktale. It is the story of Ping, a poor boy who goes out to gather firewood to keep his family warm. But once he reaches the mountains he realizes that he cannot return home due to a sudden heavy snow. However, 'Not far away Ping could see the light of an inn. He rode over to ask if he might stay there till the storm stopped.' It so happened that a magician was also staying at the inn. This man performed amazing tricks and gives Ping a magic pillow. Once Ping falls asleep on the pillow he has breathtaking dreams. In these dreams he has everything he has ever desired - fame, fortune, power. But, does the acquisition of these things bring true happiness? Youngsters will learn from Ping's experience as he discovers what it is that truly gives him joy. - Gail Cooke
