神笔马良 The Magic Paintbrush

神笔马良 The Magic Paintbrush


Little Ma Liang loves drawing, but his family is poor, and he couldn’t afford to buy a paintbrush. One day, Ma Liang received a magical paintbrush that made everything he drew come to life! He was given one condition—to use it to help those in need. When the greedy Emperor heard about Ma Liang and his magic paintbrush, he ordered Ma Liang captured. What did Ma Liang do next? Join us to find out more of this inspirational Chinese folktale.
