What magic can be found in a piece of string? The magic of a million incarnations–when the string is found by an imaginative little girl who spies it on the sidewalk. Slither, slish–it could be the dance of a scaly dragon. Or, push-a-pat–the top of the Great Wall of China. Unique illustrations, inspired by Asian brush-stroke paintings, transform the simple thread into fireworks, thunderclouds, and even the moon.
