Silk Tapestry & Other Chinese Folktales - Patrick Atangan

This is the second in Atangan's "Songs of our Ancestors" books, after The Yellow Jar. This time Atangan retells three Chinese folktales in his detailed Oriental cartoon style. It's a very interesting look, with Chinese landscapes and patterns drawn in a bold-outline, crisp illustration style. "Pan-Gu" is about the creation of the world; "The Silk Tapestry" is about an old woman who believes that her dreams will come true if she can just sew them onto a piece of silk; "Sausage-Boy and His Magic Brush" is about a little boy whose paintings come to life. It's a beautiful collection of stories and nicely complements the first volume.
