Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517598647, Hardcover)

In long-ago China, a stonecutter, who dreams of being rich, is granted his wish by an angel. But the greedy stonecutter continues to wish for more. Each time, the angel grants his wish--until one wish too many teaches him a valuable lesson. Demi's richly ornate illustrations perfectly complement her rendition of an old Chinese folk tale.

A stonecutter wants to be everything he is not and has to learn the hard way that what he really wants to be is exactly who he is.
