This book takes place in an ancient kingdom along the Great Wall of China. In that kingdom lives a man named Sion, and he is a very widely-known fortune teller. He is widely known because he is never wrong about his predictions. One day when his horse crosses the kingdom’s border and gets lost, he says that losing his horse may not have been such a bad thing. His friends think that he is crazy because they think losing the horse was a very bad thing, but when the horse comes back with other horses, the people see that Sion was right. While at the moment something may not seem like a good thing, sometimes if you wait you can understand why something bad happened, maybe for something better to happen. This book teaches us that sometimes our outlook and perspective on the world around us can be completely different. Sometimes things happen for a reason, just like in this book. Sion has faith that even though bad things happen, that everything will work out for the best. I really love the muted colors in the illustrations of this book. I especially like the pictures of the horses.
