Celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival

Translated by: Mina Tenison

In these charming volumes, Little Mei asks her grandfather about each of the four different celebrations represented. He tells her the stories of Nian and the monster Xi (Chinese New Year); Qu Yuan, a patriotic poet who loved his kingdom (Dragon Boat Festival); the Jade Emperor of Heaven who ordered the earth to be destroyed by fire (Lantern Festival); and Hou Yi who shot down the suns (Mid-Autumn Festival).
