A young boy must become the greatest cricket warrior of all time in order to save his family in this stirring folktale about bravery and sacrifice.

This retelling of the Chinese folktale, "The Fighting Cricket," first recorded in the seventeenth century, is a tale of extraordinary bravery, sacrifice, and familial devotion. Young Wei nian's family is in trouble. Their farm has been fruitless for three years and their only hope of keeping it is to find a cricket for the emperor's cricket fights. When Wei nian accidentally loses the cricket that they capture he is devastated, but an old man offers him a choice. Will Wei nian become the greatest cricket warrior of all to save his family? And if he does, will he ever find his way home again?
