About This Book
Here is the Spanish translation of Mahy's ALA Notable Book, which tells the magical story of seven Chinese brothers who use their supernatural talents to overcome an emperor's brutality.
The humorous, simple text follows seven look-alike brothers with unique powers, ranging from astute hearing to superhuman strength, as they fight the powerful emperor, who exploits the hard work of the peasants at the Great Wall of China. The rich illustrations show the majesty of early Chinese culture.
Young readers may be a bit upset when the emperor tries to have the brothers killed, but this historical detail is important in retelling the development of human societies. Overall, this is an engaging read that shows how a family's talent and cooperation beat insurmountable odds.
