Winner of the 1990 Caldecott Medal, Young's illustrations for his translation of this Chinese folktale were inspired by his youth in China and an Eastern philosophy of painting: "A Chinese painting is often accompanied by words. They are complementary. There are things that words do that pictures never can, and likewise, there are images that words can never describe" (Ed Young) ; Color Illustrations.
