Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook

Paul Yee

Description & Details

A fun book for parents and children to enjoy and treasure

The fairy tales and folklore of China—like stories told throughout the ages everywhere- bring the fantastic world of ghosts and demons into our everyday lives. So it is not surprising that food makes an appearance here- each story is followed by a simple recipe.

Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts
 is a creative book which folds fairy tales into a cookbook of kid-friendly recipes. Most of the thirteen fairy tales included in the book have been adapted and retold from original sources by master storyteller, Paul Yee- a few are original to this text, but remain true to the spirit of the collection. They are accompanied by an introduction by Jane Yolen, one our most celebrated folklorists. The splendid illustrations by Shaoli Wang bring the collection to life.
