The Seven Chinese Sisters

In this retelling of a classic Chinese folk tale, seven Chinese sisters live together and take care of one another. Each one had a special talent ranging from being able to ride a scooter as fast as the wind to having the ability to talk to dogs.

When baby Seventh Sister is snatched by a hungry dragon, her loving sisters race to save her and each of the sisters will need to use her unique talent to save their little sister.

"[Illustrator] Grace Lin expertly captures the drama and humor of the story with delightful paintings that reveal lovely Chinese landscapes and a quirky, not-too-scary dragon." -- Booklist

"Good old-fashioned storytelling distinguishes Tucker's thoroughly engaging tale of courage, individual talent, and teamwork. Each of the seven Chinese sisters has a noteworthy skill: the eldest rides a scooter as fast as the wind; the second knows karate; the third can count to 500 and beyond; the fourth can talk to dogs; the fifth can catch any ball; the sixth cooks delicious noodle soup. The baby's talents are as yet undiscovered. One day, a hungry red dragon from a faraway mountain smells the soup and flies straight to the sisters' house. Distracted by plump Seventh Sister, he snatches her and steals her away (Her first word is "HELP!"). Then the sisters kick into action, each utilizing her unique talent in the rescue mission." -- Booklist
