Myths, Legends and Folklore of China
How, after causing trouble in heaven, Monkey escaped to Mount Hua-Kuo, where he repulsed Heaven's armies, proclaiming himself to be both a saint and ruler of Heaven; 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 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; how Monkey was given a magical weapon by a Dragon King but misused it by trying to conquer the world; how ageing, renegade foxes could avoid death by transforming themselves into attractive men and women, so as to seduce young people and drain them of their life-force; how, in Heaven, criminals are executed by a strange, composite creature called a chhi-lin and how, in 1440, a giraffe (called a girin by its Somali captors) arrived at the Chinese court and was equated with the fabled creature; and how Monkey escaped from Hell (where he was being punished for his megalomania) but not before deleting the names of all monkeys from the Book of Judgments, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
