Great reading for both kids and adults, this collection is a beautifully illustrated introduction to seven classic Chinese stories. From Pan Gu and Nu Wo, creators of the world, to Bai Su-Tzin, a snake who took on human form and found true love, "Treasury of Chinese Folk Tales" offers fascinating retellings of some of China's most famous myths. Included are: "Tales of Creation - Pan Gu and the Creation"; "Nu Wo, the Mother of Mankind"; "Ho Yi the Archer"; "Tales of Morality - Journey to the West"; "The Man in the Moon"; "Tales of Love - The Story of the White Snake"; and, "The Heavenly River". While exploring the historical impact and roots of each tale, the author places the stories within Chinese culture and helps readers understand the story's hidden meanings.
