Notes

General Note
"First edition published 1937 by Doubleday & Company, Garden City, N.Y."--Title verso.
Description
An aged Chinese grandmother tells some Chinese folk tales and legends to her grandchildren.
Description
"All of the members of the Ling family, and especially the grandchildren Yu Lang and Ah Shung, were enchanted by the stories told by their aged grandmother, Lao Lao ("Old Old One"). Whether recounted to the assembled Ling family on festive occasions or shared with the eager and curious grandchildren behind the bright red gate of the Ling family residence, these imaginative tales provide a wonderful introduction to the rich tradition of Chinese folk culture. Lao Lao's grandchildren heard the stories of how Pan Ku made the world, how the Dragon King's daughter finally got married, and why the Mandarin put a stop to the Game of Butterflies. Told against a vividly depicted setting of the Ling household and its life in the China of centuries ago, Lao Lao's stories will appeal to anyone young enough in spirit to enjoy the magic of storytelling." -- Provided by publisher
