About This Book:

Superbly produced by Real Reads Ltd from the United Kingdom, Journey to the West is one of the four "great classics" of Chinese literature. The other three are Dream of the Red Chamber, The Three Kingdoms, and The Water Margin.

In ancient China a magical monkey appears, creating chaos everywhere he goes. The only way to put his tricks and talents to good use is to make him protector of Xuanzang, a young and handsome monk determined to travel from China to India in search of the precious scriptures.

Monkey and his fellow disciples, Piggy and Sandy, have to protect Xuanzang from monsters and demons who think they can live forever just by taking a bite out of the monk.

Can Xuanzang and his loyal disciples reach India safely and find what they are looking for? Do they have enough confidence and courage to conquer the demons, both those lurking around them and those within their own hearts?

Full of humour and adventure, Journey to the West is a story of self-discovery and the pursuit of excellence. Written by Chinese scholar Wu Cheng'en more than four hundred years ago, it reflects everyone's pilgrimage towards truth, peace and beauty.
