This lively story of a coppersmith's young apprentice - rich in drama and light humor - was awarded the John Newbery Medal in 1932, and has entertained readers ever since. Handsome, authentic drawings by Ed Young enhance this edition, and the background notes provide a contrast between China as it was in the 1920s and as it is today. Contemporary young Americans will enjoy Young Fu's experiences with artisans, bandits, scholars, boatmen, and soldiers, and their understanding and view of China's past and present will deepen.
