Plato Chan illustrated this very charming book at the age of 12, blending the forms and images of his Chinese heritage with the free wheeling action of Western art. His father was a diplomat in Paris and was captured during World War II, while he and his mother were sent to London. Plato gave several exhibits, raising money for war relief, and continued to do so when he moved to the United States in the year prior to the publication of this book. Not much is known of his later years. An unusual CALDECOTT HONOR BOOK. This book belonged to Caroline Thorn Binney, an international dancer, director, and choreographer, who founded the New York Folk Ballet.
