The Chinese language, and worldview, is rather different from the Western mindset. It helps to be aware of that, when one listen these stories.

very good

The Chinese are also earthy, but in a more citified way, I guess one might say. You don't know a culture till you know its stories, and these do help explain something of how Chinese people think. The stories are told well

wonderful


A wonderful selection of traditional Chinese fables from a born story teller. Each fable is elegantly retold with a clear moral lesson to be learned. The illustrations beautifully capture the essence of the stories adding to the charm of the book.

Very informative and interesting. It moves fast so if you are looking for a very in depth look at Chinese Mythology this book may not be the best choice but it is a great jumping off point.
