Comments: Here we have a story about a My-Ling an infant spirit. This is a sad and terrible story of a child’s life lost forever. The art is harsh as we see what happens here. This is a story of loss and also of love. The love a mother and father had and the love a brother has. Also a child who loses so much.
The storyteller and his dog sit and enjoy this tale. They are not as much a part of the story as usual here and it is noticeable.
The story of the My-Ling is such a sad one your heart will feel for all involved. Lost love and a lost childhood. The world can be a cruel place. It can also offer a little happiness and once in a great while be at peace for some.
The My-Ling here is illustrated so intensely and its suffering brought out so much that no matter what it looks like your heart will break for it.
