Description
According to an ancient Chinese belief, when a child is born an invisible red thread connects that child's soul to all those people--present and in the future--who will play a part in his or her life. As each birthday passes, the thread shortens, bringing closer those people who are fated to be together. Inspired by this legend, beloved author/illustrator Grace Lin has created a lovely adoption fairy tale.
