Reader's note

Add a pop of yellow to your bookshelf with a classic vintage Penguin such as this 1961 edition of Monkey by Wu Cheng'en. Monkey King was written anonymously the Ming dynasty and is most commonly attributed to Wu Cheng'en, the son of a silk-shop clerk from east China. It recounts a Tang-dynasty monk's quest for Buddhist scriptures in the 7th century AD, accompanied by an omni-talented kung-fu Monkey King called Sun Wukong, one of the most memorable characters in all of literature. This edition is translated by Arthur Waley. Just one of the many classic, collectible, vintage books available on our online used bookstore.
