This book contains the full text, in Traditional Chinese, of the first three books in our Journey to the West series for people learning to read Chinese. The three stories told here - The Rise of the Monkey King, Trouble in Heaven, and The Immortal Peaches - are unchanged from our original versions except for minor editing and reformatting. These three stories all focus on the adventures of Sun Wukong, The Handsome Monkey King, one of the most famous characters in Chinese literature and culture. His legendary bravery, foolish mistakes, sharp-tongued commentary and yearning for immortality and spiritual knowledge have inspired hundreds of books, television shows, graphic novels, video games and films. These books are based on the original epic 2,000 page novel written in the 16th century by Wu Cheng'en. It is probably the most famous and best-loved novel in China and is considered one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature. These stories are written, as much as possible, using the 600 word vocabulary of HSK3. They are presented in Traditional Chinese characters and pinyin, and include an English version and complete glossary. Free audio versions of all books in this series are available on YouTube's Imagin8 Press channel, and on our website, www.imagin8press.com.

Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy. With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible. One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.

This book contains the full text of the 4th, 5th and 6th stories in our Journey to the West series for people learning to read Chinese. The three stories told here - The Young Monk, The Emperor in Hell, and The Journey Begins - are unchanged from our original versions except for minor editing and reformatting. In The Young Monk, we tell the story of Xuanzang, the monk chosen by the Buddha to undertake the dangerous journey westward to India and bring sacred wisdom back to China. The story deals with smaller, human-scale events and the traditional themes of love, loyalty, treachery and revenge. The next story, The Emperor in Hell, starts innocently enough, with two good friends chatting as they walk home after eating and drinking at a local inn. One of the men, a fisherman, tells his friend about a fortune-teller who advises him on where to find fish. This seemingly harmless conversation between two minor characters triggers a series of events that eventually cost the life of a supposedly immortal being, and cause the great Tang Emperor himself to be dragged down to the underworld. In the final story, The Journey Begins, the emperor of the Tang Dynasty selects the young monk Xuanzang to undertake the journey. He sets out on his journey and receives help from Guanyin and from Bright Star of Venus. The Dragon King of the Eastern Ocean, who in Book One was Sun Wukong's adversary and was forced to give him his Jin Gu Bang (golden hoop rod weapon), is now Sun Wukong's old friend and gives him some life-changing advice. The story is written using a limited 300 word vocabulary, roughly equivalent to HSK 3. It is presented in simplified Chinese characters and pinyin, and includes an English version and complete glossary.

Anthony C. Yu’s celebrated translation of The Journey to the West reinvigorated one of Chinese literature’s most beloved classics for English-speaking audiences when it first appeared thirty years ago. Yu’s abridgment of his four-volume translation, The Monkey and the Monk, finally distills the epic novel’s most exciting and meaningful episodes without taking anything away from their true spirit. These fantastic episodes recount the adventures of Xuanzang, a seventh-century monk who became one of China’s most illustrious religious heroes after traveling for sixteen years in search of Buddhist scriptures. Powerfully combining religious allegory with humor, fantasy, and satire, accounts of Xuanzang’s journey were passed down for a millennium before culminating in the sixteenth century with The Journey to the West. Now, readers of The Monkey and the Monk can experience the full force of his lengthy quest as he travels to India with four animal disciples, most significant among them a guardian-monkey known as “the Great Sage, Equal to Heaven.” Moreover, in its newly streamlined form, this acclaimed translation of a seminal work of world literature is sure to attract an entirely new following of students and fans. “A new translation of a major literary text which totally supersedes the best existing version. . . . It establishes beyond contention the position of The Journey to the West in world literature, while at the same time throwing open wide the doors to interpretive study on the part of the English audience.”—Modern Language Notes, on the unabridged translation

Catherine M. O'Callaghan, Patricia A. Antonacci, Lucy P. Murphy, Florence D. Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children s Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled Home School Connections and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled On Your Own Activities . The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry. ""I m excited to have this tool to share with the teachers in our program ..." "I had been given this as a first year teacher, I would have been thrilled. It s wonderful all encompassing."" - Susan T. Weakland, Pathways Educational Program, Curriculum Coordinator, Moultrie, GA "Highly recommended!" - Dr. Gail Singleton Taylor, Old Dominion University, Darden College of Education, Norfolk, VA ""A useful reference for teachers (new and experienced) to use to see how interdisciplinary work can be accomplished. It provides good examples, activities, and references that would provide a successful first experience for teachers working" "with thematic studies."" - Lisa Grundstrom, Bloomington Public Schools, K-2 Teacher, Bloomington, MN "
