Considered one of China’s great classical novels, Wu Ch’êng-ên’s Monkey (also known as Journey to the West) is a riveting adventure story about a priest’s quest to obtain holy Buddhist scriptures for the Tang emperor. Joining him on this rollicking journey: Sandy, Pigsy and the mischievous Monkey King, Sun Wukong, whose flying cloud and magic cudgel are never far from his infamous deeds.
