Description

Here is a collection of ancient Chinese folk stories. These tales for children are as wise as they are humorous, and will be a delightful introduction to Chinese culture for children and adults alike.

"The Most Frugal of Men" is a funny story about masters of frugality outperforming each other; "The Moon-Cake" about the dangers of asking for a cake that would resemble the moon; "The Ladle that fell from the Moon" tells about the witty attempt to confound an elderly scammer; "The Young Head of the Family" tells about a father being outwitted by his daughter-in-law, and "A dreadful boar" tells how a poor old woman could defend herself of an elf that met her in the form of a wild Boar, threatening to devour her granddaughter.
