I picked this up at the PuDong Airport in Shanghai shortly after Chinese New Year after I was unable to tell a specific fairy tale to my son to explain the recreated scenes he saw while we were celebrating the Lantern Festival (The Story of the White Snake). There are 7 stories in this book separated into 3 categories.

3 Tales of Creation: Pan Gu and the Creation, Nu Wo the Mother of Mankind, Ho Yi the Archer
2 Mortality Tales: Journey to the West, The Man In the Moon
2 Tales of Love: The Story of the White Snake, The Heavenly River

There is also a historical introduction, story notes, and a list of characters at the end. I found the stories rather well told, the pictures are very beautiful and capture both the traditional artistic style and a kind of whimsical watercolor look. The stories were easy to understand in English and yet still kept true to folklore. Obviously if you wanted an in-depth Journey to the West, you'd have to look elsewhere, but this was perfect to introduce my eight year old son to the stories I had grown up with in a language he understood easily.

I definitely overpaid at the airport (as is usual at airports) but I would not hesitate to buy this book again.

This didn't flow as well as I'd have liked, however it is still very good. There are seven nice stories in this. The Chinese language, and worldview, is rather different from the Western mindset. It helps to be aware of that, when one reads these stories. Native American stories come from a culture that lives close to the Earth. The Chinese are also earthy, but in a more citified way, I guess one might say. You don't know a culture till you know its stories, and these do help explain something of how Chinese people think. The stories are told well, and the pictures complement the text very nicely.
