Gr. 6-9. Ho Yi, a celestial being, comes to Earth to extinguish eight of the nine suns that are burning it up. Unfortunately, the eight suns are the children of the Celestial Ruler, who sentences Ho Yi and his wife to live as mortals. This is one of seven stories in a collection that includes tales of creation, love, and morality, including the oft-told tales about the Monkey King. The text doesn't always make clear the differences between popular Chinese religion and traditional Buddhism, which may confuse some readers. But there's an informative introduction that looks at the origins of Chinese folktales and discusses how they evolved through various dynasties, and the ways Taoism and Buddhism left their marks on the literature. Sprightly ink drawings highlight stories that offer older students insights into Chinese culture. John Green
