产品描述

Throughout previous centuries, Chinese people have lovingly created all manner of legends, myths, folk tales, and storeies and committed them to memory.  Portraying a range of characters from fantastic gods and demons to upright rulers and everyday citizens whose choices would either condemn them to hell or righteous moral glory, these tales were circulated by word of mouth, and their popularity has withstood the vicissitudes of time.

This book features a number of such stories that are well known in Chinese culture.  In fact, many of them are the first stories many people come across in their childhood.  They are the figurative equivalent of “Mother Goose Stories” or “Aesop’s Fables” in the West; in which an oft-quoted parable or moral lesson is the centerpiece of the story.  These popular Chinese folk tales span both ancient and modern times and deal with a wide range of subjects in both the real world and the world of fantasy.  They are waiting to be(re)discovered by a new generation of readers.
