This title contains speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations, which create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. Opening pages introduce the subject of Chinese mythology and the roles of Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism in shaping Chinese culture and the mythology it has inspired. Also covered are the importance of sacred animals and festivals. Closing pages cover the most important deities and characters of Chinese mythology. This title contains three founding myths telling how the 'Four Dragons' became the four great rivers of China, how the goddess Nu Wa created people, and why the ancient Chinese week contained ten days. It includes a glossary, an index and recommended further reading. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14, and fits into Key Stage 2 English.
