Always cast inside a supporting role inside the numerous books about Marco Polo, the great Kubla Khan now takes center stage inside a splendid picture-book biography. With astonishingly beautiful and detailed illustrations by Robert Byrd plus a clever text by Kathleen Krull, this portrait finally gives Kubla Khan his due. He ruled over the greatest empire in the time, one that was lightyears ahead of Western civilization in terms of the arts, sciences, and technology. He is a wonderful subject-a man who liked to live large, making the imperial city of Beijing from scratch, siring a hundred children, throwing birthday bashes for 40,000 guests.
