Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How some cattle have twisted horns because some magical cattle were twisting off their horns to make a house of horns for a Thai girl, the daughter of a magical bull, but were told to stop because enough horns had already been gathered; how Monkey was released from his mountain prison, to accompany the pilgrim Thang Seng and his assistant Pig on their quest to the Western Paradise, to bring back the original teachings of Buddha; how "swords", made from coins strung together, protected babies from thou-tzu-kuei, the embittered ghosts of childless women (the smoke from burning slippers provided similar protection); how Monkey learned great magic from a Taoist Immortal and used his skills to rule all of the monkeys in the world; how the Lord of Heaven made Monkey Master of Heaven's Stables to keep him out of trouble but Monkey wrought havoc when he realised the reason for his appointment; how Monkey became drunk while conquering the world, enabling his heavenly foes to send him to Hell; and how a dog married a princess after the emperor rashly promised his daughter to anyone who would bring him the head of his enemy (the dog, a considerate soul, did try to become human before the wedding but the emperor, again rashly, interrupted the magical rite before the dog's head had changed), are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
