An enchanting tale of hidden beauty and fierce courage, retold in the style of T'ang Dynasty poetry and illustrated with charm and grace A young Chinese princess is sent from her father's kingdom to marry the king of a far-off land. She must leave behind her home of splendors: sour plums and pink peach petals and - most precious and secret of all - the small silkworm. She begs her father to let her stay, but he insists that she go and fulfill her destiny as the queen of Khotan. Beautifully told and arrestingly illustrated, here is a coming-of-age tale of a brave young princess whose clever plan will go on to live in legend - and will ensure that her cherished home is with her always.
