Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Join the Monkey King on his fantastic travels in this exciting retelling of the traditional Chinese folktale Monkey King's Amazing Adventures.

No matter what obstacle was put before him, the clever, wily Monkey King always got what he wanted—unimaginable strength, eternal life, even his own position in the Celestial Realm with the gods. But more than anything else, the Monkey King loved mischief and rule-breaking, and he was sure that he was the most powerful creature in all the world.

But one day, the Monkey King found himself wanting some things he never expected: to be good, to behave, and to help the monk Hsuan Zhang on his mission to bring Buddhist Scriptures—and enlightenment—to China.

Children and grownups alike will thrill to the daring Monkey King's exploits—he never disappoints, whether in the Dragon King's underwater castle, the Halls of the Dead, or the palace of Buddha himself.

This magical legend has delighted countless generations, and this lovely retelling is a wonderful introduction for a new generation of readers.
