Lon Po Po is a traditional tale from China that has been passed down orally for over a thousand years. Dark and misty, Ed Young's watercolors add an eerie layer to this dramatic story.

When mother goes to visit granny, Shang, Tai, and Paotze are told not to open the door to anyone. But a visitor knocks at the door and the children are convinced it is thier grandmother. When the eldest child discovers the truth about the intruder, the children lure the wolf outside in an attempt to outwit the sly creature.

This story would be great for 1-3 grade students.

Ruth I love the word "eerie" in relationship to the illustrations in this book! This word captures the feel, particularly in relationship to the wolf!
