Book Description from Side Cover Flap

Once there were seven Chinese sisters who lived together and took care of each other. Each one had a special talent. When baby Seventh Siter is snatched by a hungry dragon, her loving sisters race to save her (on First Sister's red scooter, which she can ride fast as the wind).

In Kathy Tucker's delightful update of a clasic Chinese folk tale, the sisters use their talents in surprising ways to rescue baby Seventh Sister - and even Seventh Sister turns out to have an unexpected skill!

Grace Lin's rich patterned drawings add the perfect note to this charming story.
