One of three bilingual adaptations of the classic Chinese folk poem about Mu Lan that I have read - the other two being Jeanne M. All told, I think I prefer this latter approach, although Chin's version is not without appeal.
The text itself reads well enough, and will be particularly appealing for younger readers, I think, while the bright, colorful illustrations, done by Tomie Arai, will hold their attention. Other than the information, presented at the rear, that the story is based on a Soong Dynasty poem, little historical background is given, which again is in contrast to the other two books.
Still, while I cannot rate this one as highly as the Lee and Zhang retellings, I think it is worth seeking out, particularly for those readers who may have had the misfortune only to have encountered this story through the Disney film.

Told in verse. Nice watercolor art. I had never known anything about the legend of Hua Mu Lan and this wasn't what I was looking for but it added to my growing familiarity with children's picture books so it served a good purpose anyway. Oh, and there's a running Chinese translation, the most interesting thing of which, to me, was the fact that with a brief perusal I couldn't find any duplicate characters nor relate it in any way to the English text.
I learned that there are tens of Very nice. I learned that there are tens of thousands of Chinese characters and that functional literacy requires the knowledge of between 3, and 4, characters.

There isn't open access to the internet so they can't use standard baby naming websites that people may use in the UK. That's according to the Office for National Statistics which released the complete set of data last week.
But Beau doesn't know which names are the most popular on her website, and she's "happy about that".
