In the first of the Everlasting Tales collection, multicultural folktales traditionally passed down through oral tradition now refreshed for a modern audience, Katrina Moore and Cornelia Li tell the Chinese legend of Chang’e, the moon goddess. Back matter includes an author's note and a condensed tale in Mandarin for bilingual readers, and the picture book will be published in time for Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations.

Before she was the infamous goddess of the moon, she was simply Chang’e.

Once upon a time, there lived a kind, beautiful woman named Chang’e. She and her husband, Hou Yi, were deeply in love and existed in peaceful harmony . . .

Until one day, ten blazing suns rose into the sky and threatened everything they knew. But while the two worked together to save the lands from burning up—someone else they trusted was plotting against them.

This epic romance follows how Chang’e’s bravery and selflessness saved her people, and why centuries later, they celebrate her and retell her story all over the world. 

Everlasting Tales is a collection of multicultural fairy tales and folktales—honoring the stories traditionally passed down through oral tradition by refreshing and preserving them for new generations.
