But only the Sky People living high in the mountains have fire, and they guard it jealously. Rabbit has a plan, however: he makes a special resin-covered headdress, tricks the Sky People and steals some fire. All the animals help him in an exciting race to escape capture, and each is marked in some way by the stolen fire. Then Deer manages to hide the precious fire in the woods, so it can be theirs forever – but once it’s hidden, how will they get it back?

It's amazing how easy it is for the tiger to pass himself off as a rug - he enjoys a life of luxury with the rajah's family, snacking on midnight feasts and playing with his children. He goes entirely undetected, until one night, when he risks expulsion from his comfortable abode as burglars break into the palace and he has to decide whether to stay in disguise as a rug - or save the rajah from a horrible beating. However, tigers who live in houses can have happy endings, as seen in this utterly brilliant picture book.

This fancifully illustrated multicultural children's book tells a famous Chinese myth about a young boy's quest to save his village. Long ago, in a remote village in China, there lived a kind and generous little boy. He spent his days in the forest, collecting wood to trade for food. One day, the boy made a wondrous discovery: a magic stone that caused his money jar and rice crocks to overflow, both of which he shared with the poor villagers. But strange things began to happen. It no longer rained. The crops died. The rivers dried up. A terrible drought had struck and would not release its grip. The brave young boy, full of dreams of a white, water-spewing Dragon, took his magic stone on a journey—and discovered how to save his village.
