Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The movie by Disney has made this Chinese heroine more of a household word, but San Souci's story remains truer to the legends than the film. Mulan disguises herself as a boy and takes the place of her aged father in military service to the Khan. Her abilities help her rise within the ranks until she becomes a general commanding one of the three armies in what would be the final battle of the war against the Tartars. Her clever plan worked, the Kahn's troops are victorious. She is rewarded and asks only that she be allowed to return home to take up her old life. The illustrations by Chinese born artists Jean and Mou-Sien Tseng spread across two large pages and are filled with details of the period. The busy marketplace, the gathering of the armies, Mulan urging and leading her comrades into battle, and the final happy day when she once again puts on her female attire and welcomes her army companions into her home are all rendered in beautiful watercolors. The edges of the pictures are bordered to resemble scenes painted on silk screens and the cover with its gold background and image of Mulan astride her warhorse will entice young and old.

    An Amazing Chinese Legend

    Fa Mulan, by Rodert D.San Souci, is a great book because it is a sneaky story. This is about a girl who takes her father's place in the war. The book has lots of detail in the pictures. This is also a short book. The pictures are amazing!!! The book was made in the format of a scroll. The pictures are also prepared using acrylic. When you look at the pictures it is as if you are there. It is as if the paintings are the color of the sunset and the rainbow. If you read this book you will find out that it is diffrent from the movie....It is the real story!!!!
