A timeless and inspiring Chinese tale brought to life for Western children!The Monkey King: A Classic Chinese Tale for Children 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 mischevious and full of energy, Monkey has uniquely amazing magical powers.

Long ago, the Jade Emporer, ruler of the Heavens, was so unhapy that China was in great turmoil. He even considered destroying its people! But the Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin, suggested another way—find Buddha's scriptures in India and bring them back to China, so that the Chinese could become peaceful and kind. This tale is about the beginnings of this epic journey, and how Monkey, Pigsy, and Sandy join this special quest.

Children of all ages will be entertained and inspired by this heartwarming tale of adversity and survival.
