THE BLACK DOG THAT COULD PLOW

Once upon a time, there was a pair of orphaned brothers. When dividing their inheritance, the older brother got the valuable land and even stole the youngest brother’s cow. The villagers sympathised with the young brother and gave him a hen, but when a neighbour’s black dog bite the hen to death, the dog’s owner gave him to the young man as compensation. Man and dog became the best of friends and the animal helped him to plow the fields. But when the older brother heard about this, he grew jealous and beat the dog. With tears rolling down his cheeks, the younger brother buried his best friend, only for a miracle to happen...

The Black Dog That Could Plow is a traditional story that has been passed down through generations of the Puyuma tribe, now retold through Chen Jing-Cong’s simple and crisp prose and Tu Hsiao-Erh’s charming illustrations.
