These beautifully told and illustrated stories brought me back to my bedside at my childhood. My parents had told me similar tales of bravery, honors and resilience. Not only those lessons have guided me through life, I taught my child the same values. Children and adults will enjoy this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The enchanting illustrations and stories bring me back to my childhood in Hong Kong, where my parents told me tall tales that carry life lessons. With this book, I'm able to share these stories with my nieces and nephews, who are fascinated by these animated, legendary characters. And at the end, they learn the lessons as well. Great book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
