Why do the Chinese consider the number "eight" to be a lucky number? For the answer to this question, look no further than the Eight Immortals who are one of the most popular subjects of classical art and craft in China.

The Eight Immortals are among the most popular figures of Chinese myths and legends. In fact they are the legendary figures closest to the hearts of the ordinary people. The stories in this book show how eight ordinary people in ancient China attained immortality through selfless actions and good deeds. Be enthralled by the vivid description of the great battle at the Palace of the Dragon King. The delightful illustrations by Chan Kok Sing add to the enjoyment of these classic tales.

This is the first of three books in our trilogy series of The Eight Immortals. In this first book, discover how eight very different mortals eventually transcended to become the fabled band of eight immortals - from the crippled beggar Tieguai Li to the kind, lotus-bearing lady He Xiangu.

If you enjoy their origin stories here, follow the rest of their magical adventures in the two other books "Miracle Makers" and "Uproar in the Celestial Palace"!
