In November 1979, pupils in England were able to watch a new TV program calledMonkey. Most of them were hearing this story for the first time. However, this storyis not new to Chinese children. The Monkey King or Sun Wukong is the main characterin the traditional Chinese book Journey to the West.
The Monkey King is not just any normal monkey. In fact, he sometimes dosenot even look like a monkey！This is because he can make 72 changes to his shape andsize, turning himself into different animals and objects. But unless he can hidehis tail, he cannot turn himself into a man. To fight bad people, the MonkeyKing uses a magic stick. Sometimes he can make the stick so small that he cankeep it in his ear. At other times, he is able to make it big and long.
The Monkey king has excited the children of China for many years. And as soonas the TV program came out more than 30 years ago, Western children became interestedin reading this story because the clever Monkey King keeps fighting to help theweak and never gives up.
