Description Reviews
 

The Empty Pot by Demi.  English.


The story teaches the importance of telling the truth.  An emperor gives a test to determine who will be the next emperor by growing the best flowers with the seeds he provides.   Ping is the only child with an empty pot while all others have lush plants.

Demi's exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Ping's embarrassing failure turned triumphant in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded.


"A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as for the simplicity of its story". --Eleanor K. MacDonald, Beverly Hills Public Library

"Extraordinarily delicate Oriental landscapes in round frames show Chinese architecture, foliage, native birds and clothing in a delightful way. And the story contains an important lesson on the worth of individual strength and honesty." Publishers Weekly

About the Author:
Demi has adapted and illustrated many folktales for children, including The Donkey and the Rock, Liang and the Magic Paintbrush, and The Dragon's Tale. She lives in Carnation, Washington.

Love all the books by Demi October 23, 2013
Reviewer: Wang laoshi from Seattle, WA  
I absolutely love all Demi's children books and own several of them. She is not only a wonderful illustrator, but also a great storyteller. I believe her ability to create exquisite pictures for the story comes from her deep understanding and appreciation to the subject matter, especially with Chinese culture and history. I wish there are more Demi's books available on this web site.
