The Making of the Monkey King

Bilingual in English & Traditional Chinese. Hard Cover.

This is the first book of the Monkey King series. The story of Monkey King (Sun Wukong) is a well known Chinese folk tale for all ages. The story has been published as children books, adult literature, video games, TV shows, and even full featured movies.

In this first book, the fantastic beginning of this unforgettable hero is told. Magically born from a rock, he is crowned as Monkey King by his fellow monkeys after finding a sanctuary for them. Anxious to make the enjoyment of his life and his rule last forever, he sets off on a journey to find the secret of immortality. At last, one Master accepts him as his disciple, and Monkey King's education begins. How he fares at school, and the sorry state in which he finds his kingdom upon his return home, culminate the humor and action of this first book in the Adventures of Monkey King series.

Retold by Robert Kraus and Debby Chen
Illustrated by Wenhai Ma

The Making of Monkey King September 30, 2008
Reviewer: MB from Highland UT Un  
This edition of The Making of Monkey King is a beautifully illustrated rendition of a well known classic Chinese tale. When we had a little visitor from Taiwan I was able to read the English version while he followed along reading the Chinese characters. Sharing stories is a great way to become acquainted.

This is a must have. July 15, 2006
Reviewer: MW from Undisclosed  
Especially if you don't know this story.  Anyone who is learning about Chinese culture must be familiar with this classic story.  This book is part 1. Monkey King Wreak Havoc is Heaven is Part 2.  Good pictures.

Good Version of Monkey King July 15, 2006
Reviewer: ray@ChildBook.c from Undisclosed  
Good adaption of the Monkey King Story.  Hard story to tell with pictures since there is so much to tell.  Chinese and English are both excellent with great pictures.
