Monkey and the Water Dragon: A Folk Tale from China by Joanna Troughton
Published by Puffin, 1997

Tripitaka, Monkey and Pigsy fight a vicious water dragon so that they can get across the river and continue their journey.

This ancient Chinese folk tale recounts one of the many amazing adventures which the friends have on their way to India to fetch the Buddhist scriptures back to China. It is wonderfully interpreted by Joanna Troughton in her vivid illustrations.
