The Caldecott Medalist's magnificent illustrations combine paint and paper collage to animate this ancient Chinese story of a wild horse that brings extraordinary reversals of fortune to its trusting owner. Three removable, cut-paper puppets invite young readers to act out the story and to create exciting new tales of their own.

From the Publisher:

A dramatic Chinese folk tale by Caldecott Medalist Ed Young
An American Bookseller Pick of the Lists, THE LOST HORSE is packaged with three distinctive puppets for young readers to create their own stories.

"A wonderful elaboration on an ancient Chinese proverb. . . This story is an excellent springboard for a discussion of the changing nature of life. An added bonus is the three articulated puppets that will encourage storytellers to extend the story." - School Library Journal (starred review)

"As in Zen tales, the strength of this story is in its subtlety. Young's sensitive illustrations portray both panoramic sweeps of life in ancient China, and the individual characters in the story." - Kirkus Reviews
