Chinese Fairy Tales & Fantasies
Illustrated by Victo Ngai
Preface by Yiyun Li
Translated by Moss Roberts
Illustrator Victo Ngai has beautifully visualised eight of the stories in this fascinating collection that reflects the defining philosophies of Chinese culture.
This landmark collection, spanning two millennia of storytelling, illuminates the beliefs and traditions that have shaped Chinese society. Each magical tale, whether depicting a wise judge, a poor family struggling to outwit a corrupt bureaucrat, or an insect coming to the aid of a human, reflects one of the three core Chinese philosophies: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism.
