The Golden Beetle


The Golden Beetle is a Chinese tale about a family that has been having a hard time. They hope that things will get better but they are very, very hungry and Ming-li, the son, is not having any luck finding work. One day a priest comes to their house to reward them for their faith and persistence. He gives Mrs. Wang a golden beetle and tells her what she needs to do. He tells her not to sell it and it will fill their stomachs for as long as they live. How can this be true? Mrs. Wang can’t wait to try it.
