Detail of Illustration by Jeanne M. Lee


For Children and Those who Love Them

Mulan (1998)   Video   G
The animation is sometimes breathtakingly lovely, as in the scene of Mulan and her father conversing under the blossoming peach tree.

China's Bravest Girl: The Legend of Hau Mu Lan ; Charlie Chin, Tomie Arai (Illustrator).   Paperback
Beautiful illustrations; verse retelling of the legend, with Chinese translation. Recommended for reading aloud to young children.

Fa Mulan: The Story of a Woman Warrior; Robert D. San Souci, Jean Tseng & Mou-Sien Tseng (Illustrators).   Hardcover
Good illustrations; a robust Mulan makes the disguise more believable. San Souci retells the legend, reading between the lines, but not contradicting the basic story.

The Song of Mu Lan; Jeanne M. Lee.   Hardcover
This close translation of the Chinese folk song from an ancient Chinese text is gloriously illustrated by the translator. Her father, Chan Bo Wan, reproduced versions from the Sung and Ming dynasties in calligraphy for the endpapers. If I could have only one Mulan, this is the one I would choose. See detail of illustration at the top of this page.

Legend of Mu Lan: A Heroine of Ancient China; Wei Jiang, Cheng an Jiang.
Amazon.com Paperback
When searching for books about Mulan, try the alternate spelling: "Mu Lan." There are books in several languages.
