King Pom and the Fox




Li Ming looks so proud guarding his one pomegranate tree that people laugh and call him 'King Pom'. But when Li Ming catches a big red fox stealing a pomegranate and the fox makes a deal with him - "Get me out of here and I'll make you rich " - the laughing stops. For the smooth-tongued fox uses his craft and daring to spin tales that will bring Li Ming fine clothes, magnificent horses, a splendid palace ... and the hand of a princess in marriage This ancient, action-packed Chinese version of Puss-in-Boots, featuring a fox instead of a cat, together with an ogre and a tiger, will delight young readers.
