Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the warrior Chang challenges young Fu to a duel, Fu panics. His only hope is that the Master will train him, just as he's trained all the young warriors of the village. But instead of teaching Fu to fight, the Master teaches him to pour tea. Fu learns purpose, flow and patience in the process, but will it be enough to defeat the mighty Chang?

With his signature breathtaking art, John Rocco has created a modern parable full of adventure, heart, humor, and a gentle message about the importance of focus and finding joy in simple tasks.

Synopsis:

With his signature breathtaking art, Rocco creates a modern parable, inspired by an ancient Chinese tea ceremony, full of adventure, heart, humor, and a gentle message about the importance of focus and finding joy in simple tasks. Full color.

About the Author

John Rocco is the author and illustrator of Moonpowder and Wolf! Wolf! and the illustrator of Alice, by Whoopi Goldberg. He earned his degrees from RISD and The School of the Visual Arts and worked for several years in L.A on such projects as Shrek (as Pre-Production Art Director) and at the Disneyquest theme park. He was the winner of the SCBWI New York Showcase in 2004 and 2007, and the winner of the 2008 Borders Original Voices Award. This story was inspired by a visit to a shop in Hong Kong, where John spotted a beautiful teapot in the window. He had to have tea with the owner, an elderly Chinese woman, before he could buy the teapot. Her deft moments in serving the tea were mesmerizing. "She was not just making tea," John says, "She was making art." John lives with his wife (another children's book author-artist) and daughter in a loft in Brooklyn, NY.
