How the Ox Star Fell from Heavenby Lily Toy Hong, Lily T. Hong
According to this old Chinese story, oxen once lived lives of luxury in the heavens. There were no beasts of burden on the earth. People had to do all the work of growing food on their own, and they often could not grow enough. When the Ox Star is sent to deliver a message to the people from the Emperor of All the Heavens, he garbles the words and is banished from the heavens forever to become a beast of burden on the earth. What was a celestial blunder becomes an earthly blessing.
