18 x 24,7 cm - 15,90€
Xiaoying, «spring flower», is the only daughter of the Huo family. Everything in her life promises a happy and fulfilling life. But the disgraceful death of her father decides otherwise. Determined to console and support her mother, the young woman vows to marry the man who will avenge the affront suffered by her family. The injustice is finally repaired… by a tiger in love with Xiaoying. Between Beauty and the Beast, will the promised love be possible? This classic tale (taken from a compilation of 1792), will remind us of Beauty and the Beast by Mme Leprince de Beaumont (1756). But here, there are no spells or metamorphosis. The story features a real tiger, proud as well as devoted to his love. In addition to invoking noble sentiments, the tale magnifies the admirable ability to recognize the other as different.
