When the children of his village were struck with a mysterious illness, Number Ten Ox sought a wise man to save them. He found master Li Kao, a scholar with a slight flaw in his character. Together, they set out to find the Great Root of Power, the only possible cure.
This quest leads them to a host of truly memorable characters and moments – and strange coincidences, which were really not coincidences at all. Simple and charming, this is a wry tale, a sly tale, and a story of wisdom delightfully askew.
