A thrilling story of the Monkey King & his epic quest - to redeem himself. He & his trusted friends face fantastic foes, demons & monsters during their amazing adventures travelling to the Western paradise. No matter what obstacle was put before him, the clever, wily Monkey King always got what he wanted - unimaginable strength, eternal life, even his own position in the Celestial Realm with the gods. More than anything else, though, the Monkey King loved mischief and rule-breaking, and was sure he was the most powerful creature in the world. But after defeat and punishment for his tricks, the Monkey King found himself wanting some things he never expected: to be disciplined and good enough to help the monk Hsuan Zhang on his mission to bring Buddhist Scriptures - and enlightenment - to China.
