Ancient Chinese Fables Boxed Paperback Set
For thousands of years, Chinese storytellers have delighted listeners with stories about the value of virtues like honesty, respect, courage and self-reliance. Chinese Fables tells these wonderful tales, some of them dating back to the third century BC, and retells them in contemporary English for a modern audience.
Each of these stories offers a nugget of ancient folk wisdom and shares aspects of Chinese culture and lore, expressing the foibles and wisdom of human experience with great humour and affection. And although the lessons are universal, the wit and flavour are uniquely Chinese.
Beautifully illustrated by a master Chinese artist using a patchwork of ancient tones and textures, with a deft touch of humour, this book will give great joy to children and adults alike.
