Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10- This slim book offers high visual interest along with concise introductions to an important body of myths. Helft deftly organizes what can be confusing anecdotes about gods who often occupy themselves with governing and making war. (She doesn't discuss historicity.) Natural disasters afflict humans, who seek help from the powerful: a great flood needs Yu's civil engineering skills; a drought calls for Yi's intervention. The Queen Mother of the West, the peaches of immortality, and the paradise islands each get a brief account. The familiar tales of Pan-Gu and the Weaver and Herder earn several pages, as does the less-known story of silk. Interleaved pages describe a dozen cultural items (jade, yin/yang, dragons, etc.). Index, source list, and bibliography are lacking; there is a useful pronunciation guide, and the translation is smooth. Full-page and vignette illustrations in traditional style with strong ink lines emphasize vitality and movement. Chen's evocative and richly colored paintings add value to this compact collection.-Patricia D. Lothrop, St. George's School, Newport, RI
