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.
Children will also enjoy Mingmei Yip’s other collection of Chinese Children’s Stories: Grandma Panda’s China Storybook.
Retold for an international audience, the beautifully illustrated stories will give children aged five to ten in other countries a glimpse into both the tradition and culture of China. 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
