The Seventh Sister - a Chinese Legend (English book)

- retold by Cindy Chang

- illustrated by Charles Reasoner

The seventh Sister - also known as The Cowherd and the Spinning Maiden - is a folktale from China.

A lonely shepherd is saddened when he must let the maiden he loves return to help her sisters weave the tapestry of night sky.

On the seventh day of the seventh month, the Chinese celebrate the Festival of the Milky Way. This is a special day in the lunar calendar, the traditional calendar of China that follows the complete phases of the moon. People hope for a clear nigh on this festival. According to tradition, if it rains, the magpies are washed away, and the tears of Cowherd and Spinning Maiden fall to earth because they are separated for another year.
