Lao Lao is a paper-cutting master making and teaching delicate papercuts. She is never lonely, surrounded by the children of the village. The greedy emperor hears about Lao Lao’s skills and has her imprisoned, not realising the ice dragon is watching! It is a beautifully written story inspired by traditional stories from China.
