Item description for Auntie Tigress and Other Favorite Chinese Folk Tales by Gia-zhen Wang & Eva Wang...
Overview Retells three Chinese folk tales, including stories about a fisherman who outwits his greedy landlord, a child-eating monster who is bested by a kindhearted little girl, and a girl whose rich father marries her to a pauper.
Auntie Tigress, a fearsome child-eating monster who decorates her immense cape with trophies collected from her victims, finally meets her match in the unlikely form of a kindhearted little girl. How the girl triumphs makes for a story full of sly wit and intrigue, with echoes of Little Red Riding Hood. In the second tale, a hardworking, generous fisherman outwits his greedy landlord. The final tale, a Cinderella story, finds a foolish father discovering that the most valuable gifts aren't the most costly. Beautifully illustrated and filled with fascinating details, these satisying stories are the perfect introduction to the folklore of China.
