The Show-Off Monkey and Other Taoist Tales

Inspired by the wisdom found in Taoist philosophy and the fourth-century parables of Chuang Tzu, The Show-Off Monkey and other Taoist Tales, from Mark W. McGinnis, is a compilation of over thirty short fables featuring an extraordinary bevy of characters, from “The Shy Crow” to “The Bull Who Lays Eggs.” Vibrant and compelling, the animals come to life in a brilliant mix of acrylic paints and Asian ink while the sage shares timeless insights.
