Summary
The Legend of the White Serpant is an old Chinese legend that is a classic in Asia. Like all famous children's fairy tales, it has been retold again and again under various names, even taking the form of a popular Chinese opera and, of several films and a full-length color cartoon. But it has never been retold more charmingly than here. Accompanied by more than 40 brilliant paintings in the classic Chinese style by a gifted Hong Kong artist, this story of rich imagination relates the adventures of a little white snake and the schoolboy who has her for a pet. After he sets her free, she is transformed by the ancient gods of China into a beautiful young woman whose name becomes White Modest Beauty. This eventful transformation involves her and her young master in a series of astonishing adventures and strange difficulties before they at last find happiness by overcoming even the unbending decree of the gods
