Considering the warlord's iffy temper, it's a perilous situation, but Chuan saves the day . by Virginia Walton Pilegard & illustrated by Nicholas Debon

Considering the warlord's iffy temper, it's a perilous situation, but Chuan saves the day with a device of carved beads strung onto sticks-a forerunner, as Pilegard explains at the end, of the abacus. As in Chuan's earlier triumph, Debon evocatively depicts court dress and decorative details, but tends to exaggerate the facial expressions of his puppet-like figures to the point of caricature. by Virginia Walton Pilegard & illustrated by Nicholas Debon.

One day when the warlord is away, traders come and take Chuan from the palace, only to become lost in the desert. Only 17 left in stock (more on the way).

This book was advertised as NEW but it was not... Two of the pages had a sticky substance on them that tore the pages and the dust jacket was worn. Great book but disappointed it wasn't new, as advertised. :(

This book is called, The Warlord's Puzzle by, Nicolas Debon.

Once there was a warlord who ruled china. One day an artist gave the warlord a one of a kind beautiful blue tile. But then. . . The artist broke it. Then the warlord said that the artist should get a punishment. The artist says that whoever solves the puzzle of the blue tile will get a huge reward. Then the warlord agrees with the artist. Later on, everyone knew about the big reward and how to get it. While everyone in line were waiting for their turn, the artist secretly searched for clever people in line. At the very end of the line, a poor peasant and his poor son were fishing for some tasty yummy supper. "What are all you honorable people doing?" asked the peasant. "We are waiting to solve a puzzle for the warlord," answered the scholar. Then the peasant and his son joined the line with the others. When they got to the palace, there were two giant pillars with dragons on it, but the poor little boy got frightened. "Enough!" roared the warlord "Artist, these two offend me more than all the rest. They will share your punishment. It was the peasant and the little boy's turn. While the little boy was trying to solve the puzzle, he was singing a thoughtful riddle. Then the warlord shouted with happiness. They solved the puzzle at last!

This book shows that no matter how poor you are you can still be smart. All of the rich people came to the palace, but they didn't solve the puzzle. The person who solved the puzzle wasn't any of the rich people. The person who solved the puzzle was the peasant's poor son.

I think the warlord should have tried to solve the puzzle by himself. He is forcing his land to solve the puzzle. The warlord is being very selfish. He just wants the puzzle to be solved for himself. If the warlord kept on trying he could have solved the puzzle by himself.

I liked the way the little boy was brave and gave it a shot to solve the puzzle even though he could've gotten a punishment.

A Chinese warlord receives a ceramic tile as a gift and promptly sentences the artist who made it to death when the title is shattered into seven pieces. The desperate artist proposes that a contest be held. Whoever is clever enough to put the tile fragments back together will be asked to live in the warlord's palace -- and his own life would be spared. After an enormous multitude of people fail at the task, a little peasant boy figures out a novel and unexpected solution. Virginia Pilegard's The Warlord's Puzzle is a delightful, highly recommended picturebook story that is gorgeously illustrated with the full color, museum quality artwork of Nicholas Debon.
