    During the Tang dynasty, master painter Wu Daozi creates an extraordinary mural for the emperor.
  • Baker & Taylor
    A tale inspired by the story of T'ang Dynasty artist Wu Daozi finds his childhood calligraphy lessons evolving into fantastical creations of dancing peonies, flying Buddhas and other beautiful artworks that adorn the city before coming to life in astonishing ways. By the author of the Alvin Ho series.
  • Random House, Inc.
    This gorgeous picture book biography, according to Kirkus Reviews in a starred review, is "a cheerful introduction not only to Wu Daozi, but to the power of inspiration."

    Who wants to learn calligraphy when your brush is meant for so much more? Wu Daozi (689-758), known as China's greatest painter and alive during the T'ang Dynasty, is the subject of this stunning picture book. When an old monk attempts to teach young Daozi about the ancient art of calligraphy, his brush doesn't want to cooperate. Instead of characters, Daozi's brush drips dancing peonies and flying Buddhas! Soon others are admiring his unbelievable creations on walls around the city, and one day his art comes to life! Little has been written about Daozi, but Look and So masterfully introduce the artist to children.
