a lovely picture book with gorgeous pictures retelling a Chinese fairy tale. One can recognize a few tropes, deep in the skeletonal structure.
A widow is enraptured with a painting of a beautiful house, and at the suggestion of her youngest son (of three), weaves a brocade tapestry of it. Then it is blown away on the wind.
One by one, her sons set out. The first two are told who took it, and how to get it, and falter. The third. . . .
it's a very elegant tale, well-told and well illustrated.
