In this entry in the Graphic Myths and Legends series, ancient China is suffering from a flood that the emperor fears has been caused by angry gods. He pleads with young Yu to find a way to save the land and people. With a dragon and a tortoise, Yu sets out to do his best. Children looking for folktales from outside the Greco-Roman and Nordic traditions will enjoy this Chinese myth, adapted by comics-writing-veteran Storrie and illustrated by experienced comics-artist Carruthers. The volume maintains the tone and look of an old Chinese tale (Storrie cites his sources at the end) while imbuing it with the dynamic art and feel of a contemporary comic book. A helpful glossary and pronunciation guide aid with the unfamiliar names, and the book includes a short list of book and Web resources. Children will want to read this for fun, but it will also be useful in the classroom.
