Comment on Three Jade Mice

  1. Lovely bit of Hughart-ness! I especially enjoyed the very cat-like Golden Silk Cat, and the contrast between its poetic name and its extremely nitty-gritty reality. Also, the bang-on nailing of the classic elements ofthese stories: Master Li's endless knowledge of the trivial, Ox's performing ridiculous physical feats without regard for his own safety, and the odious rival who gets his just desserts!
