Publisher's Description

This colorfully illustrated multicultural children's book presents Chinese fairy tales and other folk stories—providing insight into a rich literary culture.

Chinese Children's Favorite Stories is a delightful selection of thirteen Chinese folktales as told by author-illustrator Mingmei Yip. Inspired by her father's nightly story-telling adventures when she was a child, Yip hopes that by "retelling some of these thousand-year-old Chinese stories," she can pass along Chinese folklore and fables to many readers.

Retold for an international audience, the beautifully illustrated stories will give children aged five to ten in other countries a glimpse into traditional Chinese culture. The Children's Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. In Chinese Children's Favorite Stories, discover the many delightful characters—from a monkey and fairy, to ghosts and frogs—in stories such as:
  • The Mouse Bride
  • Dream of the Butterfly
  • The Ghost Catcher
  • The Frog Who Lived in a Well
  • How the Fox Tricked the Tiger
  • The Monkey King Turns the Heavenly Palace Upside Down
The Children's Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. Other multicultural children's books in this series include: Asian Children's Favorite Stories, Indian Children's Favorite Stories, Indonesian Children's Favorite Stories, Japanese Children's Favorite Stories, Singapore Children's Favorite Stories, Favorite Children's Stories from China & Tibet, Korean Children's Favorite Stories, Balinese Children's Favorite Stories, and Vietnamese Children's Favorite Stories.

"Yip's paintings emulate classic Chinese silkscreen renderings, especially the serene nature images of "The Frog Who Lived in a Well." —Publishers Weekly
"Yip's writing is clear and accessible to children, and the bright pastel illustrations are appealing." —School Library Journal
"Beautifully illustrated, the book is geared towards children ages five to ten. For the younger set, parents can read the stories to them which are sure to stimulate their imaginations." —Bicultural Mama blog
"The book is well illustrated with beautiful pictures and the quality of all of Tuttle's books is there. The books are just simply gorgeous.
