Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
ea. vol: illus. by author. unpaged. (Folk Tales of the World Series). Peter Bedrick, dist. by Publishers Group West . 1988. Tr $12.95. Gr 2-4 The first book, a Chinese folk tale which provides a background for the Chinese spring festival, tells of how the peacocks vied to be taught magic by the Peacock Fairy. A distinguished matching of text and pictures, it should be useful in the study of China. All but one of the peacocks try to make themselves look ``different'' so as to be chosen. But a humble little peacock decides that he is not worthy, gives away his beautiful feathers to people in need, and is rewarded by being given the most beautiful tail of alla fan of shooting stars. The illustrations are done in a realistic style that captures the Chinese atmosphere in appropriately rich and brilliant hues. Each two-page spread is effectively framed by trellised borders featuring different insects, animals, fruit, or Chinese lanterns. No source for the text is given. In the second book, a small portion of The Ramayana, Rama; his brother; and his wife, Sita, are banished to the forest. Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, the king of the demons, and rescued with the help of the monkey people. The illustrations, done in water-based paints with touches of brilliant color, partly resemble native Indian art and fit the story perfectly. The section of the epic that is presented is well-enough told, but even this portion is abbreviated. Older children will be better off with a more complete version, but there may be some slight appeal here for younger children. Ronald A. Van De Voorde, Graduate Library School, University of Arizona, Tucson
