A nice little collection

And I was sorry it ended. The reader has an accent that not everyone likes, tho it doesn't bother me. The story of the stone monkey is a very short summary of "Monkey" or "Journey to the West" translated by Arthur Waley, which is excellent and fun and is offered on Audible. It is the brevity of this audio book which has cost it one star from me, perhaps unfairly!😊 May your peaches always be ripe and good!
