Combining a heartwarming family story, a magical adventure, and a
multilingual primer on Chinese language, "The Magic"
"Brush" tells the story of Jasmine, a young girl who learns
Chinese calligraphy from her Agong, or grandfather. As Jasmine learns
how to paint the characters for dragon, fish, horse, friend, and more,
she and Agong are magically transported to the wondrous world they are
creating. But when Agong passes away, Jasmine must find a way for their
special paintings to live on. Could her baby brother Tai-Tai be the
key? "The Magic Brush," beautifully rendered in
traditional cut-paper, is perfect for young readers and their parents
to share, steeped in Chinese traditions and full of magical adventure.
