The Magic Lotus Lantern, is an exciting classical Chinese folktale that has been known and loved by generations of Chinese children. Full of adventures and challenges, this book will enchant every child.

The story is based on the traditional Chinese folklore about a boy named Chen Xiang. His mother, a goddess in the heavenly palace, falls in love with a young human scholar and gave birth to him.

His uncle Erlang Shen, the elder brother of the goddess, denies the marriage and punishes the goddess by imprisoning her beneath a mountain and wrests away her magic lotus lantern.

Chen Xiang, when informed of his mother's tragic story, sets out to save his mother by any means possible. Finally, the lantern is returned to the liberated mother and harmony is restored with the reunification of mother, son, father, and the lotus lantern. Please see Chinese mythology: The Magic Locus Lantern for more details.

The carefully composed illustrations, coupled with superb book design, make the book appropriately childlike and whimsical, and open this classic tale to new interpretations. Thoughtful students of Chinese folktale will welcome this astonishingly artful edition.

The book comes with Chinese characters and the Pinyin (phonetic transcriptions), a great adventure book to enjoy and practice reading Chinese. The high-quality print is nicely produced to capture the vivid color and exceptional detail of the original artwork.
