    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"
    Flap copy
    This fresh and elegant translation of 100 tales from 25 centuries of Chinese literature opens up a magical world far from our customary haunts. Illustrated with woodcuts.
