Sion is a fortune-teller who lives in an ancient Chinese kingdom with his son and a beloved horse. When Sion begins to experience a series of unlucky events, he shocks everyone in town by saying that it is a sign of good things to come. Will Sion lose his reputation for being the wisest man in the kingdom, for how could misfortune ever be a blessing?
This profound folktale from China, originally retold by Chen Jiafei and illustrated by award-winning artist Wang Ran, has been translated into English.
The artwork provided by Wang Ran provides a beautiful complement to this story. This book is perfect for children over the age of four years. I would recommend this story for children who enjoy fables and tales, especially if they enjoy some sort of message from the story… great for a story time for older children because it allows for some discussion. ~Youth Services Book Review
