The stories of the Taoist teacher and storyteller Chuang-Tzu have long been
revered for their whimsical simplicity and childlike sense of wonder. Admired by poets, artists, and philosophers, his stories ask us to see the world from new and unique perspectives. This imaginative book is based on one of Chuang-Tzu's most famous stories, in which the storyteller wakes up and wonders who is the dreamer—and who tbe dreamed. The book begins with the butterfly of Chuang-Tzu's famous dream taking off on a flight of discovery—through fabulous Chinese landscapes captured in beautiful watercolor illustrations. The butterfly's adventures, its
encounters with traditional Chinese characters, and tbe age-old but still relevant lessons of the importance of imagination and having an open mind, make this an inspiring and thought-provoking reading experience for children.
