Monkey, Paperback Book


'"After all," he said, "you're only a monkey spirit.

How can you delude yourself into supposing that you can seize the Jade Emperor's throne?"'Featuring the adventures of the irrepressible, cloud-riding trickster Monkey and his band of unruly disciples, this centuries-old Chinese fantasy blends beauty with absurdity, nonsense with profundity.
