By Li Jian and Yijin Wert

This beautifully illustrated multicultural childrens book tells the story of a young boy and his magical rooster in both English and Chinese. Long ago, there lived a boy named Tang Yun. He studied very hard to take the imperial exam in the capital city thousands of miles away. Yuns mother was worried about him traveling alone, so she hand-embroidered a rooster on Yun's outfit, hoping the magic rooster would be her son's guardian angel. During his trip, whenever Yun was in danger, the embroidered rooster jumped out of Yun's outfit. He was alive! The magic rooster was brave and kind, and he helped Yun overcome many obstacles during his trip. Arriving at the capital city safely, Yun successfully passed his exam with honor before returning home.
