Synopsis

The Prince is Born by Larry Bennett

Shortly after his miraculous birth, made possible with help from the phoenix, Prince Ru-lan is captured by Su-ling, the evil enchantress, who plans to raise Ru-lan and use him to take over the kingdom. Several years later, the phoenix reminds the little boy of his real identity and he escapes from Su-ling's cottage with the help of his animal friends. Once their son is firmly ensconced in the palace, the emperor and empress undertake a daring plot to forever rid the kingdom of the threat of the evil enchantress. This book subtly teaches values while introducing the reader to interesting aspects of Chinese culture and language.

About the Author

Larry Bennett and his wife Dorothy adopted a baby from China in 2004, Olivia Cai Hua. With the help of her Chinese babysitter, she was raised bilingually, maintaining ties with the culture of her birth country. The books in the Ru-lan series stemmed from stories that Larry would tell Cai Hua when she was young. Basia Tov has been making art, one way or another, throughout her life. Her interest in illustrating and writing children's books has developed from the time her son and daughter were born. Besides her Fine Art degree, Basia holds a Master's in Early Childhood Special and General Education. Currently, she lives in New York City, where she teaches in an elementary school, pursues her art career, creates children's books, and spends every spare minute with her family.
