KIRKUS REVIEW

A second collection of Chinese folk lore, welcome news to those who relished the unique flavor of the earlier book, Folk Tales from China (published 1944). The rich legendary background of Cathay is as rewarding as any folk lore there is. Stories of the origins of things, of the natural and supernatural, of heroes and sages, of good men and bad,- these reveal the philosophy and ethics as well as the romantic and imaginative qualities of China. The stories are short, brief in presentation.
