From Organization / 国外机构评价:
The Cable Car and the Dragon is a well-told children's story which takes place in San Francisco. Appropriate to the setting, the story is about a famous cable car and a Chinese dragon. It is delightful and fast-paced, taking its young readers (ages 6-10) frolicking through the streets of San Francisco to the bay at the edge of the city. After sixty years of puffing up the same hills and clinging to the same track, Charlie, the youngest cable car in the city, deviates from his assigned route, turning right into Chinatown instead of the usual left at the end of Nob Hill. Charlie lumbers into the midst of a Chinese New Year parade and befriends its main attraction, a Chinese dragon named Chu Chin Chow who is equally dissatisfied with his lot, which is marching in the parade every year. Chow shows Charlie all of the attractions of the parade, and in retum Charlie takes Chow on a thrilling and almost disastrous ride through the hills and streets of San Francisco. The experiences of these two are told in such a way that the reader learns much about the famous city of San Francisco, including not only Chinatown and the hills and streets, but even the weather: "When the city is all covered with fog, it's like living inside a great gray pearl."

Foreign Customer Review / 国外客户评价:
You don't have to be from San Fran to love this little story, although I am sure that it helps. The plot follows Charlie the cable car as he and a favorite passenger (the narrator, who is Caen himself, of course) leave the cable car routes and decide to explore their hometown of San Francisco, coming into contact with Chu, a Chinese New Year's dragon. Caen's legendary wit is surprisingly well-suited to this kind of writing; I loved his personification of the young cable car (he compares Charlie's voice to "a piece of wood being rubbed across steel"). Byfield's watercolors help tell the story (making the book a good mixture of visuals and text) but are also pleasures in and of themselves. The story does not have a very specific and blunt point for children to take away (which is fine with me). That said, it does imply that thinking out of the box (or off the trolley routes) is good and that making friends with people from other cultures is beneficial. Kind of appropriate for San Francisco when you think about it.
