Book Description from the Front Cover FlapThere is an ancient Chinese belief that an invisible, unbreakable red thread connects all those who are destined to be together.
A king and queen rule a beautiful and peaceful land. They should be full of joy and contentment, but they both feel a strange pain that worsens every day.
Then a peddler’s magic spectacles reveal a red thread pulling at each of their hearts. The king and queen know they must follow the thread, wherever it may lead.
Grace Lin’s lovely adoption fairy tale is for all children—and the parents who would search the world to find them.

They include the novel The Year of the Dog and illustrations for the picture book The Seven Chinese Sisters.
