This book features 19 fairy tales and legends from Chinese folklore. They are written in modern language that will be understandable even for the youngest readers, but the parables will speak to the audience of all ages. The stories are inspired by both classic stories from the 3rd century B.C. and more modern texts from “only” a few hundred years ago – you’ll find a list of them at the end of the book, so enthusiasts can also reach for the original sources.
All of the fairy tales in Chinese Folktales feature stunning illustrations by Lak-Khee Tay-Audouard which combine inspiration from Tang figurines and other elements of classical Chinese art with warm, eye-catching colors.
