What if:
tigers still roamed in Hong Kong mountains?
a woman gave birth to an egg?

do chickens have combs?
do goats go bleh?

did the deer lose its tail?
did the misers turn into monkeys?

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."
Albert Einstein

Why did the world’s greatest genius believe this? Because fairy tales are universal. They shed light on many essential human conditions. Children are compelled to interpret, imagine, predict. These skills are the roots of inspiration, creativity and vision. For this collection, local author Jane Houng has selected a range of traditional Chinese tales and retold them for contemporary Hong Kong children.
