This collection of ninety-three tales offers readers a unique look at Chinese culture through the lens of its oral tradition. Virtually every region of China is represented here, and many of these authentic folktales have never before been made available to the English-speaking world.
The stories, each of which is accompanied by a brief introduction, are thematically grouped: dragon tales, love, magic, ghosts, monsters, and evil spirits, history and legend, fairy tales and fable, and human nature.
Readers of every age will be both instructed and entertained by these charming folktales.
