Review:

The powers unleashed by Chungliang Huang's masterful brush paintings will send centuries of wisdom and energy coursing through you. We know these animal energies reside deep within us and it is Master Huang's genius to release them through his guiding words and swirling brushstrokes. Month by month, day by day, Chungliang Huang is our laughing, dancing, shape-shifting guide to an ancient realm of knowing. (Gerald McDermott, Caldecott Medalist, Fellow of the Joseph Campbell Foundation)
