Life of a Genius

By Curriculum Connections

(Curriculum Connections, School Library Journal) With spare prose and delicately rendered pen-and-paint artwork, Demi transports readers to 11th-century China and introduces a beloved individual who was an accomplished scholar, wise statesman, articulate writer, and humble humanitarian. The lyrical narrative highlights events in Su Dongpo’s life, touches on his moments of enlightenment, and includes examples of his poetry, creating a strong sense of the man and his achievements.
