Review quote

"Brimming with magic and mortals, these enchanting legends and myths bring to mind familiar fables, yet posses an aura that is wholly Chinese . . . Enlightening and enjoyable reading." --"Booklist" "These tales from China are richly underscored by an ancient philosophical battle-- the Taoist challenge to the hierarchical rigidity of the Confucian order-- which gives the stories an edge and power uniquely their own. An enthralling collection." --"Los Angeles Times"
