A retelling of the Chinese folktale “The Chuang Brocade”

The Weaving of a Dream is the story of a widow who provides for her sons by creating intricate brocades. One day, she trades a brocade for a beautiful painting of a palace. She then spends years lovingly recreating the scene in brocade only to lose her work on a windy day. After everything she has done for her family, her youngest son seeks to recover the lost treasure, traveling through terrible weather and rocky terrain.

Great for ages 5 and up. Beautiful and vibrant full-color illustrations.
