The Five Chinese Brothers


Posted on Monday Artday

I wanted to participate in this week's Monday Artday challenge, "Favorite Book" (I'm really late though). One of my favorite children's books is "The Five Chinese Brothers" by Claire Huchet Bishop and Kurt Wiese. It's a retelling of an old Chinese legend about five brothers who looked exactly alike with each posessing special abilities. When one is arrested for murder and condemned to be executed, they work together to outwit the executioner by using their individual abilities.
