Master Li and Number Ten Ox wander ancient China having adventures. Terms such as "rollicking" may apply.

I can see why people like this series, but it never quite clicked for me. Part of it may have been Ox's voice, which is fittingly stolid but doesn't quite convey excitement. Another part may have been the sheer implausibility of the adventures, which -- I mean, points for creativity, but suspension of disbelief was really difficult.
