Great origin and storyline

I have not downloaded this book but I did buy and read it at a store and let me tell you, this is a very good book. It includes Chinese mythology and a good storyline that ties in with it. The details and the stories that Ba tells help the characters have a background. 📚📖📘📙📕🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓

One of the best books!

This books is really amazing! I love the stories, and the talking goldfish as well. I love how creatively the author designed Dragon’s problem about flying. The ending is so beautifully described, and the action and emotions never let down. This is an amazing book!
