When the beautiful robe that Ling-Li has woven for her wedding is stolen by a flock of magpies, the Phoenix Fairy. Greene offers a formal retelling of a sometimes cryptic Chinese folktale

When the beautiful robe that Ling-Li has woven for her wedding is stolen by a flock of magpies, the Phoenix Fairy. Greene offers a formal retelling of a sometimes cryptic Chinese folktale. Ling-Li, a virtuous, penniless young woman, painstakingly weaves and embroiders a robe to wear at her wedding. Her vain and wealthy neighbor Golden Flower so covets the robe that she offers to give Ling-Li 10 satin robes and six brocaded jackets in exchange. When Ling-Li refuses, Golden Flower snatches the robe, then tosses it aside, whereupon it is whisked away by a flock of magpies.
