China Tales and Stories : Sai Weng Loses a Horse: Chinese-Russian Bilingual
Sai Weng Loses a Horse reminds us that things are not always as they seem...
The Sai Weng Loses a Horse story is from the Mead-Hill collection, China Tales and Stories.
Sai Weng Loses a Horse is a great moral tale, based on the doings of one of the most beloved characters in Chinese literary history.
Sai Weng's tale was told and retold so many times that he became almost more famous than a hero - he became almost an archetype. In that way, Sai Weng even became part of China thinking. (For more about that idea, please see Mead-Hill's, China Thinking - An Introduction.)
Sai Weng Loses a Horse is published in multiple Mead-Hill editions. Each edition is illustrated by a different artist. Each artist uses a different style of Chinese illustration. Each illustrated set can be collected; the collections can be put together to build a special library of China tales and stories.
Sai Weng Loses a Horse is available in multiple Mead-Hill versions.

About Zhou Wenjing
Tatiana descends from distinguished, politically active families. An uncle was an assistant to Andrei Gromyko, and as a journalist, accompanied Nikita Khrushchev on his celebrated visit to the United States. Her mother was a poet, painter, and nurse who cared for the elderly and children. Her father received numerous State honors in his lifetime; one (which came with an official State title) was awarded for his work in saving the lives of Jewish people during the Holocaust; another was for being one of the engineers who volunteered to go into Chernobyl to clean up after the nuclear disaster.
Tatiana has been awarded the Saint Anna (Russian) and the Saint Stanislas (Ukrainian) Medals of Honor for her International charitable and cultural work. She has done extensive biographical and autobiographical writing.
Tatiana currently lives in Beverly Hills, CA. Her international experience and sensibility are special assets to Mead-Hill's cultural exchange publications, especially those involving Russia and China.
