retold and illus. by Jerry Pinkney, Penguin $16.99 Score: ) Instead of the usual Chinese setting, Jerry Pinkney transports this classic tale to Morocco with lush and beautiful watercolors. Instead of an Emperor, there is a King and the people of his court have different titles, as well. Pinkney's beautiful retelling has a musical quality that matches the rich and delicately detailed illustrations of the people, architecture and animals of Northwest Africa.6-10.
