A visual masterpiece ."-- Kirkus Reviews , starred review * "Caldecott-winning author/illustrator Young has created another stunning and meaningful picture book to be enjoyed by all ages. This book is exquisite in text, tone, and illustration. A compelling fable that is crucial for humanity and will spark meaningful classroom conversations."-- School Library Journal , starred review * "Young weaves an elegant cautionary fable."-- Publishers Weekly , starred review In a place called Hunger Mountain there lives a lord who has everything imaginable yet never has enough. To satisfy his every desire, he hires builders to design the tallest pagoda; a world-famous tailor to make his clothing from silk and gold threads; and a renowned chef to cook him lavish meals with rice from the lord's own fields. What more could he possibly want? Yet when drought plagues the land, Lord Cat is faced with his first taste of deep loss, he ventures down the mountain and what he discovers will change his life forever. Rendered in exquisite mixed-media collage, Caldecott Medalist Ed Young's deceptively simple fable is a deeply affecting tale about appreciating the value of treasures that need not be chased.
