Little Plum by Ed Young [in What Do I Read Next? Multicultural Literature]
A childless, elderly couple long for a child, “even if he were only as big as a plum seed.” Indeed, the woman bears Little Plum, who never grows larger than a plum seed. But he matures into an ingenious, brave young man, eventually saving his entire village from the greedy evil lord. Mighty, indeed, is Ed Young‘s art, as well!
