What a lovely book, story and particularly the illustrations! I'm a fan of all things tangram, and this was especially pleasing to receive. Of course, I'm not in the 4 or 5 to 8 year age group -- I can only say that I am going to purchase another copy, as an adult, to give to another adult tangram fancier. It's a really great interpretation of one of the legends surrounding the origin of the tangram, and I can't say enough about the quality of the illustrations. Excellent book that I've been through tonight about five different times -- handing it also to my mother, who truly enjoyed it as well.
