Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
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 a farmer befriended a fox that took the form of an old man who, magically, took the farmer to a restaurant far away, to be entertained in grand style, only for the farmer to eventually realise that respectable people do not befriend foxes, upon which the fox and his vulpine friends vanished, leaving the farmer far from home and without money; the devastation caused by the horned, bodiless rain dragon, Thaoh-thieh, that lost its body as a punishment for eating people and, having no stomach, is insatiable; how victims of drowning became ghosts (kuei) until another unfortunate person drowned at the same place (an event that the kuei might therefore initiate); how each earthly house had both human and spiritual dwellers, including a kitchen spirit that was bribed with sweets so that he would not give, each new year, an unfavourable report to the Emperor of Heaven; how Monkey (Sun Hou-Tzu) was hatched from an egg on the eastern side of the Pacific (so is technically a New World monkey); and how the revolting Monkey was eventually captured, and sentenced to death, by Jade Yu-Ti, the Emperor of Heaven, who gave him over to the Taoist master Lao Chun, to be dissolved in the alchemical furnace but even that could not harm the indestructible Monkey, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
