The Monkey King

A band of monkeys enjoys life high in the trees. Their enjoyment grows when they discover a new fruit: the mango!

But one mango falls to the river and into the hands of the human king, who decides he should have all the fruit for himself. As his soldiers and the monkeys come into conflict, the human king learns an important lesson from the monkey king.

In this enchanting story, a writer and illustrator bring together the best of both Eastern and Western ideas and morality.
