Tales Of A Chinese Grandmother
by Frances Carpenter
illustrated by Malthe Hasselriis
This illustrated multicultural children's book presents classic Chinese fairy tales and other folklore—providing a delightful look into a rich literary culture.
Chinese folktale tradition is as colorful and captivating as any, but the stories themselves still are not as well-known to Western readers as those from The Brothers Grimm, Mother Goose, or Hans Christian Andersen.
Tales of a Chinese Grandmother presents a collection of 30 authentic Chinese tales. These classic stories represent the best of the Chinese folklore tradition, and are told here by the beloved Lao Lao—the grandmother in the nineteenth-century Ling household. The result of a long and proud storytelling tradition, these Chinese stories are sure to delight adults as well as children of all ages.
