When Steve grasped the painting, it tigled aainst his fingertips. He felt as if he had rubbed his shoes fast over a carpet. And the tingling spread through his whole hand. "What's going on?" he asked, scared.

From the momen Grandfather gives Steve a magic paintbrush that grants wishes, life in Chinatown will "never be the same.

Steve can scarcely believe it.  With his new paintbrush, everything he paints becomes real. Now he, Grandfather, and Uncle Fong can wish for anything their hearts desire. Steve's painting sends Uncle Fong back in time to the village of his childhood. Grandfather meets the legendary Lady on the Moon. Steve wonders if the magic paintbrush can bring his parents back. But when their greedy landlord, Mr. Pang, tries to use the magic paintbrush to make his wish come true, the three realize the paintbrush has its own agenda.
