This book is about how Chinese people dance with a dragon costume that is sort of like a puppet. The reason they dance with a puppet dragon is because they think that whenever someone dies they have a good spirit and a bad spirit, so they dance with the scary dragoon to scare the bad spirit away so it won’t disturb other people.
China is a place of peace. Everyone thinks that China just wants to rule the world but this book reminds us that the Chinese people just want happiness for everyone.
My favorite part of the story was when it told and showed really cool pictures of people trying to get rid of the bad spirits because everyone thought that it would disturb people and animals and life. So they started dancing with the dragon to scare the bad spirits away. This idea worked for them because when they started it people would be happy and they would not be disturbed any longer…or for at least a couple of months!
