"Written in the style of ancient Chinese poets, the text dwells lovingly on the pleasures of imperial life while splendid ink-and-watercolor illustrations poignantly capture the princess's leave-taking as well as details of palace life in images evocative of Chinese screen paintings."
"The delicate descriptive text is so effective at creating the world of the princess that the silk-smuggling becomes secondary to the reason for it; this isn't the account of the spread of a manufacturing technique but a story of a girl preparing to leave home for the unknown."
From the Publisher
Annotation This beautiful picture book shares the story of a beautiful Chinese princess who must leave her homeland to marry a foreigner. Although she will miss many things, the most important is the product of the silkworm. She and her maid come up with an inspired plan to bring the wonders of silk to her new homeland. With delightful, detailed illustrations.
Editors Note The only person who can communicate with the Samirans, a race of large aquatic aliens who have cooled the crystals on Orbis for nearly two thousand rotations, Johnny Turnbull must race against time to appease them when they become increasingly agitated and threaten to destroy Orbis. 17,500 first printing.
