"Sa Tu Sai was a happy little Chinese girl until the great flood came, and she and her family were swept away into the unfriendly waters of the overflowing Yangtze Kiang. Huts, crops, animals, and livelihood disappeared overnight, and Sa Tu Sai, her mother, her father, and her three brothers were stranded in a leaky old houseboat. And that night, while they were floating slowly down the river, Sa Tu Sai rescued a small baby, whom she named Tu Ku. The subsequent adventures of Sa Tu Sai and Tu Ku, her adopted brother (involving the Japanese invasion of China), are varied and exciting, and Sa Tu Sai's devotion and bravery will not soon be forgotten by the reader. Both author and artist have caught the spirit of China and have made between them an uncommon book." Slight curl to boards, two pages with tiny tear at top edge. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has very light edge wrinkling, minor soiling. Very Good+/Very Good+.
