Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A mountain blocks the sun and rains rocks on Ming Lo's house; a wise man helps Ming Lo and his wife move their home but lets them think they have moved the mountain. ``The singular range and power of Lobel's books impress readers with each new work,'' PW observed. ``Radically different from his previous creations, the paintings are in subdued but rich tones.''

Indeed, when they open their eyes, the mountain had moved! 1993 (orig.
