Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
The tangram is a puzzle game from ancient China. A square is divided into seven pieces: five triangles, one square, and one parallelogram. Traditionally the game is to fill a shape with the seven pieces. This book comes with a bright red tangram inset in the cover to be used by the child to duplicate the illustrations. This story for young children follows a magician as his wishes come true and he becomes others animals and objects. The magician is illustrated by manipulating the seven pieces of the tangram puzzle. His first wish is to become a bird and the pieces are rearranged to form a bird. He becomes a boat and sails the sparkling seas. He turns into a strong and sturdy house. He dances and he runs. He rests and ponders what he will become next. The last page of the story is blank, allowing the reader to add a last wish for the magician and draw it themselves with the tangram blocks. Each page is a beautiful blend of blue-green paper that is a wonderful background for the bright red tangram pieces. This is a good interactive reading/playing project for children and their parents.
