“But Nengshou did not understand many things. Why was the Monkey King pretending to be injured? Why did he offer him a fabulous gift not to fight? Why had the Monkey King offered him so many ways to avoid fighting? Why didn’t the Monkey King just tear him to pieces and be rid of him?”
Anthony Santangelo a local Moorestown patent attorney has just published his first book in a rare format, a beautifully illustrated, short fantasy story with important moral lessons which would be great for the reluctant reader.
The Monkey King of the Tranquil Mountains is a story loosely based on a mischievous mythological creature known as the “Monkey King” found in Chinese legends. The Monkey King is wise, playful, and a keen martial artist who defeats his opponents in a teasing, taunting manner. In this story, each of the cruel enemies he faces is taught an important lesson.
This book also contains many famous Japanese woodblock prints. Most of these prints are by Katsushika Hokusai. I’m sure you have seen many of his works including: “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” or “Boy Viewing Mount Fuji.” These illustrations add context to the story although the story takes place in China and the woodblock prints depict Japanese scenes. Very suitable for your cocktail table.
A great story and lots of questions left un-answered to stimulate the mind. Lots of martial arts action. Young adults especially would find themselves intrigued by the action and the moral lessons taught in this book. I’m sure you or the young men in your life would enjoy this!
