After hearing that the Painted Fan will be his undoing, Lord Shang . by Marilyn Singer & illustrated by Wenhai Ma. Age Range: 6 - 10.

After hearing that the Painted Fan will be his undoing, Lord Shang commands that all fans be destroyed; still, Bright Willow, a poor farmer's daughter, brings along an heirloom fan after Lord Shang selects her as his unwilling bride. When she's caught talking with a young groom, Shang agrees to waive her punishment if she can fetch a huge pearl that's guarded by a terrible demon. The Chinese-born illustrator, now a professor at Duke University, makes a fine picture-book debut with dramatically posed scenes of realistically depicted figures in impressionistic settings that effectively enhance the mood.

The Painted Fan. (excerpt). When the imperial houses of Li and Chen would not stop fighting over who should control the Land of the Seven Caves, it was easy for Lord Shang to march in and set himself up as ruler. He and his men drove the remaining Lis west into the mountains and the Chens east toward the sea. May they never be reunited, he sneered. Then he went to his most trusted soothsayer to ask how long and prosperous his reign would be. The old man gazed deeply into a cup fo tea and said nothing for such a length of time that the lord grew impatient. He began to tap his fan on the side.

These days even Disney has finally accepted female equality and is turning out smart, strong heroines. But back in the late '80's and '90's, Asian fairytale heroines were few and far between. "The Painted Fan" is one of two excellent exceptions to this cultural drought (the other being the even more beautiful "Weaving of A Dream" by Marilee Heyer). "Fan" is a modern retelling in classic Chinese style, and the illustrations by Wenhai Ma are lovely. Every page is illustrated - even the text pages have a handsome bamboo-like border. An excellent addition to any young girl's library!

Long ago in China, Lord Sheng ruled with wealth and power, but was hated and feared by all. He commanded that the imperial houses of Li and Chen be driven apart and never reunited. One day, Lord Sheng asked a fortune-teller how long his reign would last, and was told that a Painted Fan would be his undoing. He promptly had all fans burned, throughout the kingdom. The cleverness that finally overthrows him turns out to be a young girl who owns the Painted Fan.

Marilyn Singer created this story in the style of ancient Chinese folktales. There are several with the theme of a maiden using a magical item to succeed on a quest, or of a maiden succeeding in bringing down a bully. The watercolors by Wenhai Ma that illustrate this book are wonderful. Worth buying the book for the pictures alone! Ages 5-10.

Lovely watercolour & pencil illustrations - full of beautiful line and form.

The true rulers of a mythical china "Land of the Seven Caves" are busy quarelling & are easily usurped by the ferocious Lord Shang. After conquering the land, he is content, until a soothsayer prophesies that a painted fan will be his undoing. Skeptical but uneasy, he finally declares all fans are outlawed.

Travelling he sees a simple goatherd he falls in lust with and has her brought to the palace & his downfall begins with quite a few adventures for the heroine along the way.

Naturally everything pans out happily but you may as well keep SOME plot mystery to look forward to, even though it's a picture book.

Very fine illustrations, and an adequate supporting story.
