Summary Inspired by Chinese folktales and legends about Monkey, King of the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit, Great Sage Equal to Heaven. But his friends just call him Monkey! Hilariously mischievous and full of energy, Monkey has uniquely amazing magical powers. Long ago, the Jade Emperor, the ruler of the Heavens, was so unhappy that China was in great turmoil that he even considered destroying its people. The Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin, suggested another way - find Lord Buddha's scriptures in India and bring them back to China to help the Chinese people become peaceful and kind. This Chinese children's story is about the beginnings of this epic journey, and how Monkey, Pigsy, and Sandy join this quest.
