Description

This Chinese children's story is beautifully illustrated with traditional Chinese watercolor-inspired paintings. Monkey: The Classic Chinese Adventure Tale is inspired by Chinese folktales and legends about Monkey, King of the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit, Great Sage Equal to Heaven. But his friends just call him Monkey! Hilariously mischievous and full of energy, Monkey has uniquely amazing magical powers. Long ago, the Jade Emperor, the ruler of the Heavens, was so unhappy that China was in great turmoil that he even considered destroying its people. The Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin, suggested another way-find Lord Buddha's scriptures in India and bring them back to China-this would help the Chinese to become peaceful and kind. This tale is about the beginnings of this epic journey, and how Monkey, Pigsy, and Sandy join this quest.
