There were once dragons that played on clouds and around the sun and moon. The dragon’s favorite game was looking for the pearls of wisdom, and they found the pearls little by little. Once they saw Ping painting beautiful dragons, they were happier. The dragons did not realized that Ping was scared of dragons, but the fear toward dragons did not stop Ping from painting dragons. Ping continued painting dragons all around the walls, and he told his friends that he was not scared of dragons. One night a dragon goes to Ping’s room, and Ping becomes scared. The dragon tells Ping to find the three pearls of wisdom. Ping goes on an adventure to find the three pearls of wisdom, and when he finds the pearls the pearls helps him understand that he should not be afraid of dragons. The dragons were happy for Ping because he no longer feared dragons. The book reflects Chinese beliefs and culture. The illustrations of the dragons are very colorful, and the bodies of the dragons are gold and white. ( )

Author and illustrator, Demi, has created yet another book I have read that is beautiful. The word beautiful describes his writing style and illustrations. The lessons and morals of his books are also positive. I loved how this book had extension pages to capture the beauty of the dragons. In this story Chinese character, Ping, has learned to face and embrace his fears. I would read this book to a child of any age. ( )

A captivating experience aimed at anyone facing a fear and needs to overcome it. Both my son and I were mesmerized by the illustrations and created our own story line based on the art. A timeless story, which I will use in the future.

Beautifully illustrated, shiny book sure to attract children of all ages. The underlying concepts of learning to accept oneself and to continually grow and improve fit well into both the plot and the pictures. ( )
