Monkey Subdues The White-Bone Demon" was adapted by Hsu Kwang-jung and Pan Tsai-ying and illustrated by Chang Hung-tsan. Published by Liaoning Art Publishing House it is copyrighted 1979. The introduction reads: "Monkey Subdues the White-Bone Demon is a picture-story book based on an exciting episode from the Chinese mythological novel "The Pilgrimage to the West". It tells of the travels to the west of the monk Hsuaan Tsang with his three escorts, Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy, in search of Buddhist scriptures. They arrive one day at the White Tiger Mountain where a man-eating monster known as the White-Bone demon lives. This man eater has its eye on the monk and tries to snare him by turning itself first into a beautiful girl, then an old woman, and finally an old man."

The book is richly illustrated with full color illustrations in circles on a pale beige floral background. The book has illustrated board covers and a beige cloth spine. It is in very good vintage condition with some light scuffing on the cover and a gift inscription on the inside front cover. The pages are clean and the binding is tight.

A great mythological story from the Buddhist tradition to share with adults and children alike.
