Reviews - What do customers think about The Five Chinese Brothers (Paperstar)?

Great book of the times; beware liberal ideology who insist racism  Jun 3, 2008
Keep in mind, this is an old Chinese tale, not somehow a racist American interpretation of Chinese culture like some reviewers here try to make it out to be. I read this book in the 1980s when I was just a few years old. It was my favorite book. It was simple, easily readable, the pictures were funny, etc. I not once viewed the book as racist, or ethocentric, or God knows any other names liberal nutso's put on this book. When I was 2 years old.. 3 years old... 4?... I wasn't asking "Mommy, why are their faces yellow? Is this some sort of Communist plot at taking American hatred of the Chinese to a new level?" Sorry, I was reading the book as it was intended to be read... a simple picture book to entertain. As it stands, this book is a classic, and I'll be buying it again.
And you liberals out there... lighten up. It's too bad you're so guilt-ridden at living in a prosperous country that you're going to punish other Americans for your guilt. I, fortunately, don't have such mindless guilt. May God have mercy on your souls.
I remember reading this as a child  Mar 6, 2008
I hope it's not politically incorrect to love this book. It is a story about five brothers, each with an unusual talent or ability.
A wonderful story but best for older children  Feb 23, 2008
I loved this story as a child and after reading the reviews I purchased it thinking that I would add it to my Nursery School library. Unfortunately I forgot that it discusses execution which is not appropiate for children under 7 years of age.
great short story   Feb 16, 2008
Avoid the nonsensical reviews written by advocates of censorship and control who try to pervert children's imagination with a sort of patriarchial system that is devoid of all fondness for youth. This is a great short story that I still recall.
Excellent Book  Oct 27, 2007
i loveed this book growing up. and i think that all children should read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!
