Illustrated by Suling Wang
Steve can scarcely believe it. With his new paintbrush, everything he paints becomes real. Now he, Grandfather and Uncle Fong can wish for anything their hearts desire. Steve's painting sends Uncle Fong back in time to the village of his childhood. Grandfather meets the legendary Lady on the Moon. Steve wonders if the magic paintbrush can bring his parents back.
But when their greedy landlord, Mr Pang, tries to use the magic paintbrush to make his wish come true, the three realise the paintbrush has its own agenda.
The spirit of magic and a contemporary San Francisco Chinatown setting weave a whimsical story that explores how the power of memory and love helps alleviate loss.
