Tale of the Mandarin Ducks
Katherine Paterson (au); Leo Dillon (il); Diane Dillon (il). Brilliant watercolor & pastel paintings in the style of 18th-century Japanese woodcuts illuminate this engaging retelling of a popular Japanese folktale. Coveting a mandarin duck for his magnificent plumage, a greedy lord captures & cages him for all to admire. But the wild creature pines for his mate. When Yasuko, the kitchen maid, releases the bird against the lordís command, she & the one-eyed servant, Shozo, are sentenced to death. How the grateful drake & his mate return the loving coupleís kindness & outsmart the capricious lord makes for a wondrous outcome. Illustrators Leo & Diane Dillon, winners of numerous awards, including the Caldecott Medal, studied ukiyo-e, a type of Japanese art. A wise & beautiful book. Reinforced binding.
