While playing outside one warm summer day, delicious smells draw Ming to Fu Wang's house. A loud gong sounds and Fu Wang calls out to his neighbors that he is working on eight wonderful dishes. Although no one eats the dishes that Fu Wung prepared, the next day he demands they pay for the aromas from the cooking.

When they refuse, he takes them to court where a wise judge solves the problem by allowing him to listen to the sound of their coins as they shake and rattle them.

Neither sound or smell has shape or volume. They pass freely through the air. The story about Fu Wang's greed gives an excellent example of the senses of sound and smell. The Creative Minds section at the end of the book provides activities to help children learn about all five senses. Go to the Arbordale Publishing website to explore additional resources.
