A charming retelling of a traditional Chinese story.
 
Chang's paintings are so good, his birds and animals seem alive. So when the Emperor's new temple needs painting, he sends for Chang.
 
But why is Chang painting dragons without any eyes? Is it true, as he claims, that if he adds eyes the painted dragons will actually come to life?
 
With free online audio.
 
Recommended for readers aged 2+
