The Yellow Monkey Emperor’s Classic of Chinese Medicine

By Damo Mitchell; Illustrated by Spencer Hill
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Chinese medicine - the graphic novel. A horse complains of a chest as tight as a bear's embrace, a goat bleats about skin as dry as parchment, and a rat describes his urine as darker than soya sauce. Join these lively characters and their friends as they seek diagnosis from wise animal sages and the yellow monkey emperor. Covering seventy-eight syndromes of Chinese medicine, these cartoons illustrate the disturbances and illnesses that can affect the organs of the body, or Zang Fu. They are accompanied by a concise description of the syndrome. This book is a fun way to remember and be entertained by the syndromes and their symptoms.
