“Long ago and far away in China, there once lived Old Man and his dog peach Stone. Old Man was always welcomed by the villagers, for he told them wonderful tales that he and he alone knew.
Then came winter. The villagers stayed in their houses, and there was no one but Peach Stone to listen to Old Man’s stories. Out of his winter loneliness, then, came a wonderful plan.
The story of how Old Man and Peach Stone brought a gift to the world will charm and delight young readers.”
