Laibao’s Quest for a Bride. A touching traditional Chinese Folktale for children. It will warm your hearts and lift your spirits! This is the type of “soul food” I love to feed my children.
I love this story so much, I used it to create a homemade Chinese fairy tale puppet show for my daughter Nunu’s (not her real name) 8th birthday in November 2012. Click on this picture below to see tons of photos of the show and puppet.
Here is the story in Traditional mandarin Chinese. If you can get your hands on the 12 book volume of Chinese Folk and Fairy Tale book set below, I recommend you do it. This hardcover set has so many beautiful, soul-warming, satisfying chinese traditional tales (all in traditional mandarin chinese). If you know of a vendor who sells it, please leave me a comment below so I can share it with others.
Thanks! – Jzin
