“The first imperial court of China is the setting for this Han tale in which the seven brothers who look, walk, and talk alike display their unique powers. First Brother can hear a fly sneeze 100 miles away. Second Brother can see the fly sitting on the Great Wall of China. Third Brother is a man of unusual strength and so on. As a team, they repair a hole in the Great Wall in a single day. The emperor, a cruel man feels threatened by “a person” of this strength. He sends off two armies to execute Brother Three. Then begins the drowning, fire, arrows; but, as each brother replaces another, their unique talents are revealed. Finally, Brother Seven, in one fell swoop, takes care of the armies and the tyrannical emperor. The brothers are free to return to a peaceful life once again. The fine, detailed watercolor paintings recreate the era in which the Great Wall was built.”
