Description

Born in Beijing, award-winning author Michael David Kwan (recipient of the Kirayama Pacific Rim Book Prize) has a strong affinity for his country and its culture. His latest work, The Chinese Storyteller's Book is an authentic collection of nine mythical stories based on ancient Chinese folk tales. First exposed to these tales during his childhood in China, Kwan heard them told by story tellers on street corners. Like most oral traditions, the tales were colored by the personality, imagination, and experience of the teller, with each story being slightly modified from teller to teller. Now, magically retold by Kwan and imbued with his own personality, imagination, and experience, these tales explore a variety of subjects and life lessons through a cast of fantastic and supernatural characters. They The Fox Faery's Wedding, To Be the Best, The Foxes, The Pear Tree, Whiskers and Bright Eyes, The Fisher's Tale, The Night Singer, M'Lady, and The Butterfly. Imaginatively drawn illustrations and an insightful introduction by Kwan make The Chinese Storyteller's Book a magical experience for readers of all ages.
