The West Lake of Hangzhou is famous for its scenic beauty. It is here that visitors can feast their eyes on the stately mansions of exquisite workmanship and the entrancing landscape with towering willows reaching down to the water line.

Amid this setting, the Chinese have spun fanciful tales of how the lake was born, why the city is famous for its silk, tea and parasols, and given us memorable characters such as the 'crazy monk' and the 'Spirit of Catfish'. All these and more, along with the illustrations in this book will delight readers of every age and make us grin like children discovering a secret for the first time.
