The Dragon Emperor: A Chinese Folktale

The Dragon Emperor: A Chinese Folktale

Publisher: Press 2007 | 52 Pages | ISBN: 0822567407 , 082256744X | PDF | 12 MB

Divided into four brief chapters and imaginatively illustrated by Tang, this foundational Chinese folktale introduces dragon-emperor Ying Long and his numerous battles against the demon rebel Chi You. Although some children may be confused about whether Ying Long was a historical figure (which isn't really clarified by Wang's afterword about "the close ties between dragons and emperors"), the legend itself is beautifully told, including colorful details of warriors who ate "sand, rocks, and metal for meals" as well as down-to-earth cultural context, such as the invention of the first compass. Suggest this On My Own Folklore title to newly independent readers, especially around the lunar new year.
