I like this book and so did my 5 year old. He laughed when he learned of Ming Lo's solution to moving the mountain.
Arnold Lobel is one of my favorite children's author/illustrators, and I bought this book on the strength of his name alone. Ming lo and his wife live in an unfortunate location--next to a large mountain--and would like something better. They ask the Wise Man in the village for advice, and try each of his suggestions, to no avail. Finally he teaches them the Dance of the Moving Mountain, which solves all their problems, and they live in peace and harmony.
