A slave girl finds herself fulfilling destiny's plan in this coming-of-age fantasy. Ping, an unwitting dragon keeper, travels with the last imperial dragon across China to reach the ocean so that he may regain his strength. Nancy Wu brings to life both Ping and the wise, old dragon. Wu captures the young girl's voice and thoughts artfully, as well as the deep intonation of the dragon's thoughts, which the girl can hear. Wu introduces enchanting renditions of characters--from the evil dragon hunter and the city folk to the kind and helpful countryside peasants. This is a listening journey of charming folklore in the hands of an expert reader. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
