BOOK REVIEW

Reviewed by Lois J Wickstrom for Readers' Favorite

In a magical land where dragons dance inside the palace walls, Empress Cixi declared that a wondrous dog should be born. This dog was to be both mortal and immortal. It should play with balls and with children and protect the royal family. This dog was known as Foo Fu, a name which means good fortune and blessings. Today we call this dog the Pekingese, or sometimes the lion dog because it resembles a tiny lion. This dog of fabled beginnings is now popular outside the palace walls. It plays with children and protects families all over the world. Those of us who get our dogs from the shelter sometimes suspect magical backgrounds for our new family members. The Empress and the Legend of Foo Foo by Drs. Sambataro confirms our suspicions.

Empress Cixi was the most intelligent and most favored wife of the emperor. One of her least famous, but most long-lasting decrees was the order to breed the Pekingese dog. A myth has built up about the birth of this popular dog. This version of the myth of The Empress and the Legend of Foo Foo, by Drs. Sambataro, has been translated and edited by Xiaolei Xie and illustrated by Martha Escobar. My favorite parts are about the naughty lion dog Snowflake, who liked to hide in the snow and tease Princess Peony. This dog could warn the emperor when somebody told him lies. Next time you see the pair of Chinese dog statues, be sure to notice the ball under the paw of the male dog and the puppy under the paw of the female. These statues are of Foo Foo, the legendary dog, both playful and protective. I'm hoping for a sequel about Princess Peony and Snowflake. Young readers will enjoy this well-written, interesting tale.

About Us

Our Story

A few words About Us

Who we are:


Dr. Cynthia and Dr. Paul Sambataro spent a lifetime working with children that have experienced traumas, and disabilities. After retiring from private practice they decided to write a series of children's books that taught life lessons associated with truth, love, loyalty and respect for others. More than that, they wanted to fuel the child's imagination through historical images that existed once upon a time. Foo Foo serves as the child's valet through time from the Qing Dynasty, to Bombay, to Buckingham Palace and even to the White House. Each book takes the child through the location, as if they are there at that point in time. Dr. Cynthia and Dr. Paul live in the grand state of Texas, have three wonderful children and four magical Foo Foo's


A Star is born

Foo Foo Mafia is the first Pekingese owned by the Sambataro's and much different from the Maltese dogs they have always had. Mafia will play ball for days, and protects their daughter with the fierceness of a, well, a Foo Dog. After researching the history of the Pekingese, it was clear the birth story of the Pekingese was magical and needed to be re-told. Integrated with the Foo Dog, a Foo Foo Superhero was born. While Foo Foo Mafia lives and plays here in Houston, the star of the books is Foo Foo, a magical creature born in China, part Pekingese, part Foo statue, Foo Foo travels through history on flights of fancy and even returns home to the Summer Palace in China. Watch for the book Foo Foo Returns Home.


The Magic of Illustrations by Martha I. Escobar, Art Director, Foo Foo Media Empire

Our story was brought to life in may ways but the beautiful visual magic was created by Martha Escobar, a supremely talented designer, and artist in Guadalajara Mexico. Every page is a masterpiece that represents her unique attention to detail weaving together history and fantasy, in a beautiful Qing tapestry. Ms. Escobar's formal in education in architecture can be seen in the beautiful designs through out our books Ms. Escobar is the Art Director for Foo Fu Media Empire and manages all things Foo Foo.


Translation, Linking Cultures, Xiolei Xie

Foo Foo is a story for the world, but most importantly a story of the culture of China and the Chinese people. We wanted to be sure the book was translated for the Chinese children because the story of Foo Foo belongs to them and we have found a way to share the beauty, history and wisdom of ancient China with the Children of the world. Our translator is Xiolei Xie, has worked to make sure the story was told well and translated perfectly to Mandarin. We are lucky she is here in Texas to share her expertise.
