Horn Book Review

Young Prince Jen, heir to the kingdom of T'ang, sets out on a journey to the legendary kingdom of T'ien-kuo to learn the methods of governing a happy, harmonious realm from King Yuan-ming. The circuitous plot is clever; the Chinese setting is purely imaginary; and the writing style is amusingly embellished with exaggeration and flowery language. From HORN BOOK 1991, (c) Copyright 2010.
