Award-winning author introduces a beloved figure in Chinese history to readers in this parable of hard work, determination, and creativity

As long as he can remember, Xian has wanted to be a great calligrapher, like his father.

When he turns six, he's finally old enough to start studying. Calligraphy is more than writing—it's painting—and Xian learns how much work and creativity go into what look like effortless strokes.

Based on stories still told about Xian and his father, famous calligraphers of the 4th century, Eighteen Vats of Water is about determination, creativity, and learning how to see, as well as the importance of family traditions.
