Folktales Of China (Chinese Folk Tales) is a graphic comic book written and compiled by author Luis Fernandes. Chinese folklore consists of fables, legends, mythological tales, and historical occurrences. This collection of Chinese folktales consists of stories such as the popular tale of the Laughing Monks, who taught the path to a pleasant life through laughter, the Valiant Shu Lang, the woman who dressed herself as a man to join the military, which is the only language they knew, and The Great Discovery—the tale of how a phoenix led a young couple to a treasure. The writing style maintained in this book is very lucid and easy to comprehend. The pictures are also free from ambiguity and easy to understand. The smooth presentation and gripping story lines followed in the book makes it an enjoyable read, especially for youngsters. Luis Fernandes had also written Jataka Tales: Stories of Wisdom, The Adventures of Shikari Shambu, Folktales of Japan: Japanese Folktales, and so on.
