Tikki Tikki Tembo

by Arlene Mosel Illustrated by Blair Lent

Now available in paperback, this classic Chinese legend tells the story of a boy who nearly drowns in a well because his brother cannot pronounce his very, very long name fast enough for an old man to save him. The lovely drawings capture the beauty of rural China.
