And here is the other new unit for today: Monkey King! I really wanted to include this based on a fantastic student project from last year, but I was stymied about how to do that... until I found a nice summary of Sun Wu Kong's exploits in the Wilhelm fairy tale book (which I used for the Chinese fairy tale unit already), and since that was not quite long enough on its own, I added Wikipedia synopsis of Journey to the West plus a super-abbreviated summary of the final chapters of Journey that I found in Werner. So, I'm not quite sure how successful that will be, but I think it should work. My guess is that quite a few students will choose this unit, so it means I will get good feedback about whether setting it up this way is viable!
