This folktale told using ancient Chinese puzzles and watercolor illustrations has been beloved for over twenty-five years and is the perfect addition to your Father's Day reading listWhen Little Soo asks for a story, Grandfather Tang arranges the tangram pieces and two magic fox fairies spring to life. The foxes change shapes as quick as a wink, from rabbits to dogs to squirrels and geese. But their game turns dangerous when a hunter raises his bow. . . . Originally published in 1990, Grandfather Tang's Story will continue to delight new readers as the wonder of the tangram puzzle--and an endearing game between a grandfather and his granddaughter--reveals a story of magic, clever animals, and, ultimately, true friendship.
