Although Wenze Wang was born in China, he does not know kung fu. Instead, he is often a bit confused because he is constantly immersed in the stories he imagines. He moved to the country, where he could grow vegetables and raise chickens, but his chickens never laid eggs. It was only a year later that he discovered all his chickens were roosters. He likes raising chickens and also telling stories.

Lijun Ma once rode a little witch’s broom and flew to the clouds, and she also visited the mouth of a blue whale. She is very familiar with animals in the forest.
