  • Chinese Folktales The Dragon Slayer and Other Timeless Tales
    Chinese Folktales The Dragon Slayer and Other Timeless Tales
    Age range 9 to 12

    For thousands of years, Chinese storytellers have delighted listeners with stories about the value of virtues like honesty, respect, courage and self-reliance. Chinese Folktales collects nineteen of these fantastic tales, some of them dating back to the third century BCE, and retells them in contemporary English for a modern audience. This updated edition-previously titled Chinese Fables-offers the same great stories in a smaller, easier to handle format at a lower price.

    Each of these stories offers a nugget of ancient folk wisdom and glimpses of traditional Chinese culture and lore. All of the tales express the foibles and wisdom of human experience with great humor and affection. Although the lessons are universal, the wit and flavor are uniquely Chinese.

    Beautifully illustrated by a master Chinese artist using a patchwork of ancient tones and textures, with a deft touch of humor, this book will give great joy to children and adults alike.

    Chinese children's stories include:
    The Practical Bride
    Stealing the Bell
    Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy
    Cooking the Duck
    Scaring the Tigers
    The Dragon Slayer
