Publisher's Description

Chinese folklore tradition is as colorful and captivating as any in the world, but the stories themselves still are not as well-known to Western readers as those from The Brothers Grimm, Mother Goose, or Hans Christian Andersen.

Tales of a Chinese Grandmother, written by Frances Carpenter, presents a collection of 30 authentic Chinese folktales. These classic stories represent the best of the Chinese folk tradition and are told here by the character Lao Lao, the beloved grandmother of the nineteenth-century Ling household. A sampling from a long and proud tradition, these Chinese folktales are sure to delight adults as well as children of all ages. Chinese stories include:
  • How Pan Ku Made the World
  • The God that Lived in the Kitchen
  • The Daughter of the Dragon King
  • The Grateful Fox Fairy
  • The King of the Monkeys
  • The Wonderful Pear Tree
  • Ko-Ai's Lost Shoe
  • Heng O, the Moon Lady
  • The Old Old One's Birthday
