Monkey King is a twenty-volume comics series based on the legendary Chinese novel The Journey to the West. It is a magisterial wor...k that took seventy people over six years to complete. The Journey to the West is at once a comedy, a drama, a satire, a meditation on faith and discipline, and a fantastical dramatization of China's history. Its creation covers many centuries and several dynasties. Begun during the Song Dynasty (10th~13th century), Journey is set against the backdrop of the 7th century Tang Dynasty, and tells the story of a priest named San Zang, who introduces China to the Mahayana Buddhist scriptures of India, and his trio of disciples: the monkey king Sun Wu Kong, the gluttonous pig Zhu Bajie, and the quiet but noble sea monster Sha Wu Jing. The San Zang who appears in Journey to the West is a specialist in Tripitaka, and is based on a real priest, named Xuan Zang. Xuan Zang lived from 602 to 664, and have traveled the western lands and traded with other countries along the western border from 627 or 629 to 645. More than three hundred years later, a story based on Xuan Zang's adventures, first appeared. The Journey to the West originated from this story. The Song Dynasty was founded in 960, yet because the only known author of Journey to the West, Wu Cheng en, died in 1582, during the Ming Dynasty, the story is considered the result of collective creation spanning five hundred years. The story also traveled through several countries and includes at least four different timelines. The events of Journey to the West, which include epic battles and threatened palaces and imperiled kings, could resonate with readers during almost any age, but the story focuses on portraying a peaceful society where deviance is ultimately trumped by enlightenment, violence defeated by benevolence. It is this balance, between depicting familiar events of conquest and telling a story about the search for truth, that makes The Journey to the West so beloved today. The author, Mr. Wei Dong Chen, is a highly acclaimed and beloved Chinese artist and an influential leader in the New Chinese Cartoon trend. His company, Creator World in Tianjin, is the largest comics studio in China. He has published hundreds of cartoons, which have been recognized for their strong literary value throughout the world. In 2005, he undertook the monumental effort of translating four classic Chinese novels into serialized comic form. After six years of great and enthusiastic work, he completed his dream, which now consists of 12,800 pages of beautiful drawings and epic storytelling. Monkey King is one of the four novels. Monkey King is a new landmark of comic artistry in China, and is a bold and exhilarating treatment of one of the definitive works of Chinese literature. <BR><BR> Vol. 1 Birth of the Stone Monkey <BR> Cited as one of the greatest Chinese novels, MONKEY KING (The Journey to the West) follows the adventures of Sun Wu Kong, born from a stone on Spring Mountain and given the title of the Handsome Monkey King, who seeks to learn the secret of eternal life. Under the tutelage of the Buddhist Master Puti, Sun Wu Kong becomes incredibly powerful, but his hubris grows until he has run afoul of the gods, who dispatch an army to Spring Mountain to subdue the Monkey King, who has declared himself the Emperor of Heaven.

They have lots of funny bits in. And Henry always gets into trouble!" <br> <i>Mia, age 6, BBC Learning is Fun</i></p> <p>"It's easy to see why Horrid Henry is the bestselling character for 5-8 year olds." <br> <i>Liverpool Echo</i></p> <p><b>Because it's funny</b><br> "My two boys love this book and I have actually had tears running down my face and had to stop reading because of laughing so hard. My oldest son is rereading all the books in this series on his own now and he still loves them. Happy reading!" <br> <i> T. Franklin, Parent</i></p> <p>"A modern comic classic." <br> <i>SF Said, Guardian Children's Books Supplement </i></p> <p><b>Kids get to be harmlessly rebellious</b><br> "Henry is a beguiling hero who has entranced millions of reluctant readers... little rebels will love this collection and even little angels will be secretly thrilled by Henry's anti-heroic behaviour."<br> <i>Herald</i></p> <p><b>Henry's naughtiness is a yardstick against which children can get a sense of their own moral goodness and social justice<br> </b>"What is brilliant about the books is that Henry never does anything that is subversive.

This book lived up to his expectations! Horrid Henry is like most boys: he always has a plan and is always getting into mischief! It was amusing, and he could not put it down. Can't wait for the next. He read it cover to cover by himself in 2 days! That for me sells a book! He can't wait for the next one to be published. He has recommended it to all his friends." <br> <i>Mrs. Tami Gold, Parent</i></p> <p><b>Reaches both boys and girls equally</b><br> "Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age." <br> <i>Judith Woods, Times Books</i></p> <p><b>A global publishing phenomenon with 12 million copies sold!</b></p> <p><i><u>WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HORRID HENRY:</u></i></p> <p>"Parents reading them aloud may be consoled to discover that Henry can always be relied upon to behave worse than any of their own offspring." <b>Independent</b></p> <p>"An absolutely fantastic series and surely a winner with all children. My son took this book as his favourite during book week at his school and converted a few children to the cause. Long live Francesca Simon and her brilliant books! More, more please!"</p> <p>"My 5-year-old adores them so much he couldn't wait to start reading because of them."</p> <p>"I really like Horrid Henry and like reading it to my dad. It's funny!" <br> <b>Matthew, 9, St. Albans</b></p> <p>"Horrid Henry is a fabulous anti-hero: monstrously selfish and greedy, he does things most children only dream about... a modern comic classic." <br> <b>The Guardian</b></p> <p>"My 6-year-old son has now read the whole series unaided and is quite content to re-read the stories again and again. My 5-year-old is dying to be able to read well enough so she can read them independently too!"</p> <p>"Henry is really naughty and makes me laugh. He's very funny and he has lots of adventures." <br> <b>Martha, age 5, Bella</b></p> <p>"A flicker of recognition must pass through most teachers and parents when they read Horrid Henry. There's a tiny bit of him in all of us." <br> <b>Child Education</b></p> <p>"It didn't even make it to the library shelves and there's a long waiting list for it!
