Set in an off-kilter version of ancient China, the two protagonists, Master Li Kao and Number Ten Ox, thread one wild adventure into another as they seek a cure for a village of children who succumb to serious illness. A truly imaginative, creative, and witty read. The best thing is that there are two more books about Master Li and Number Ten Ox.
