Fu Finds the Way
( by John Rocco, Hyperion $16.99 Score: )

Fu's father is annoyed with his careless way of planting rice. When he tells the boy to redo the task, Fu tosses the plants and accidentally hits the warrior Chang, who challenges Fu to a duel. All night the Master teacher insists that Fu learn to pour tea. When morning comes Fu discovers that learning purpose, flow and patience are essential, whatever the task involves. The story may be a stretch for some young listeners, but it is one that may provoke some thought and conversation. Rocco’s art sets the mood and tone of a story well worth sharing.  They say 3-7, we’d say this will be lost on kids under 7.
