Brilliant paintings illuminate this retelling of a popular Japanese folktale. Coveting a mandarin duck for his plumage, a greedy lord captures and cages him. The kitchen maid releases the bird and is sentenced to death. How the grateful drake returns the kindness, and outsmarts the capricious lord makes for a wondrous outcome. An ALA Notable Book.
