Philomel Books,
Pub. Date:
Twelfth-century Japan was hardly a time of feminism, but this story tells a tale, found on a scroll, of a strong girl with ideas of her own. . . . The drama of the story is stunningly captured by Cooper's soft oil-wash paintings. . . . Truly, a timeless story.--School Library Journal, starred review. Full-color illustrations.
