Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, is the mightiest of all beasts. The problem is, he's tired of being feared and hated and is determined to become a god instead.

As luck would have it, an ancient evil has returned and is secretly turning everyone into monsters and the gods are in need of a good warrior. They strike a deal with the Monkey King: travel the world and defeat the monsters and they'll make him a god.

Soon the Monkey King is off to Greece, where he gets tasked with pet-sitting - and potty-training - a three-headed dog. Oh, and then there's the whole 'defeat a man-eating Minotaur' mission too...

A colourful graphic novel, filled with mischief, a few pee mishaps and lots of action.

Packed with exciting action scenes and a whole lot of monkey business unfolding in cute, colorful, and exaggerated illustrations that are reminiscent of manga. * Kirkus Starred Review *
