“Once again Sarah Brennan and Harry Harrison have hissed new life and colour into an ancient Chinese legend… This charmingly haunting (and hauntingly charming) tale will delight readers and snake-lovers of all ages.” John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong.
“Sarah Brennan’s work is a meeting between traditional Asian narratives and the universal taste of children for graphic stories. The tale-telling gifts shown in these books, along with the exuberance of the language and rhymes, make them unique in children’s literature.” Tom Keneally, author of Schindler’s Ark and Ned Kelly and the City of Bees
