Grandfather Tang's Story

Grandfather Tang's Story

Grandfather tells a story about shape-changing fox fairies who try to best each other until a hunter brings
danger to both of them. (Tangrams)

*****

Take a square, cut it into seven pieces each called tans, and then arrange those pieces into different patterns and you have yourself a tangram.  In this warm, soft story, based on this old Chinese tradition, a grandfather and his granddaughter share some magical time together.  Grandfather spins the tale of two fox fairies, represented by the tans, who change shape into different animals.  One becomes a rabbit so the other becomes a dog and the chase is on.  The competition escalates until they find themselves in a dangerous spot that will require a bit of teamwork if they are to create a happy ending.  32 pages
