The Story of Chopsticks
Praise for The Story of Chopsticks
"Xuan's handsome illustrations, boldly colored cut-paper designs recalling a traditional Chinese art, are abstract enough to suggest the "high and far-off times" of this modern pourquoi tale, yet lively enough to engage viewers... this story is rooted in Chinese culture and offers American readers an authentic glimpse of its traditions."

"In the cut-paper collage artwork, strips of black paper define each shape and line. The spaces between are filled with other colors. Like the hues in a stained glass window, these look all the more brilliant for their proximity to black. A little long for most preschoolers, this well-designed book will please children in the primary grades most. "
