The Angry Monkey (生气的 猴子)

A Story in Simplified Chinese and Pinyin, 1800 Word Vocabulary Level, Journey to the West Book #19

The monk Tangseng has harsh words for his eldest disciple, the monkey king Sun Wukong. His pride hurt, Sun Wukong complains to the Bodhisattva Guanyin and asks to be released from his service to the monk. She refuses his request. This leads to a case of mistaken identity and an earthshaking battle that begins in the sky over the monkey’s home on Flower Fruit Mountain, continues in the palaces of heaven and the depths of the underworld, and ends in front of the Buddha himself.
