Consuto and the Rain God: A Chinese Fable by Philip L. Levin



In this delightful Chinese fairy tale, an old soothsayer matches wits with a dragon rain god. The dragon’s envy becomes his downfall as Consuto’s patience and wisdom win the love of the people. Children and adults will delight in the fable’s clever ideas and imagery. Illustrated by photos taken by the author and a friend on their journeys through China, the pictures reflect on the merging of past and present, characteristic of today’s China.
