TALES OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE


Contes des peuples de Chine - Guillaume Olive & He Zhihong - 2016 - Traditional tale - 7 years and up - 17,5 x 24,5 cm - 96 p. - 16,90 €


The characters in this book are as varied and as interesting as the people who invented them: an old man with a green beard, a dog that was born in an ear, a fierce and flea-infested ogress, a child who walked all his life to find the sun.
Each of these stories reflects a different tradition. The authors, who love popular myths and customs, collected these tales from minorities living in China’s distant south-west mountains. Those presented here were selected for their impact and originality. Each ethnic group is portrayed in a painting on silk. The stories themselves are illustrated with paintings on rice paper.
