The Dragon Tribe (Illustrated by Kim Xiong & Translated by Clarissa Shen) In a mystical, ancient China, as a rite of passage, children must slay a dragon to become a true member of the Dragon Slayer Tribe. With more and more members proving their courage, the number of dragons become fewer and fewer. What will they do when there are no more dragons left in the world? How did the Chinese perception of dragons change over time and become what it is today? In contrast to Western fairy tales, dragons are benevolent creatures in Chinese folklore and symbolize imperial power, prosperity and good fortune. The Chinese even refer to themselves as the descendants of dragons at times. This tale takes an interesting spin on how the Chinese came to view dragons. With whimsical illustrations, this simple story also prompts children to think about the consequences of our actions in the world and the legacy we leave behind. Hardcover 40 pages 9" x 8.25" English with Simplified Chinese(pinyin) at the end of the book
