Fu Finds the Way by John Rocco

Rocco, John Fu Finds the Way. Disney/Hyperion, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $16.99. Fu is only a little boy, but he manages to infuriate the mighty Chang, who challenges Fu to a duel. When Fu turns to the Master for training, he finds himself spending the entire night learning how to pour the perfect cup of tea. How will this help Fu fight Chang – that is the question of the day! I love Rocco’s illustrations – they capture the flavor of old China, with a just a hint of Disney-esque. And the lesson on patience, focus and purpose is well-illustrated. EL – ADVISABLE.
