1 Review
The twenty stories that comprise this collection reflect some of the ethnic diversity of China. Through a cast of familiar animals, we get a glimpse of the cultures from which the stories emanate. Besides their literary value, these tales convey moral instruction. Each tale is enhanced with an illustration by Li Ji.
