This unprecedented children’s story offers a glimpse into the lost civilization of Sanxingdui in Sichuan Province, China, over 3,000 years ago. In 1986, the epic discovery of the monumental bronzes in Sanxingdui was acknowledged as the “ninth wonder of the ancient world.” The artifacts unearthed are as old as the Pyramids of Egypt. The ancient history of China is being rewritten as the ongoing excavation of Sanxingdui continues.
