Monkey King Wreaks Havoc in Heaven (Chinese/English)
Type of Product:
In Monkey King Wreaks Havoc in Heaven, our show-off hero is determined to prove to the Emperor of Heaven that he is more than equal to any of the celestial warriors or ministers. But first he trains and finetunes his own little monkey army, then he sets off to equip himself with his trademark hero’s weapon. Only then is he ready for a show-down with the Jade Emperor of Heaven. Epic battles are fought, and eventually all the lords and ladies of Heaven must run for cover as Monkey King runs amok. The supreme Buddha is the only one capable of reigning in the rampaging simian-- and he does it with the strangest of wagers. This is the second book in the Monkey King series. Loved by generations of Chinese children and adults, Monkey King stories are allegorical tales based on the true story of a Chinese Monk, Xuan Zang (602-664) who traveled to India and brought Buddhism to China.
