163A: illustrations, dragon toothache, Li Po moon, princesses, mountain climbing

I am looking for a large (coffee-table sized) book of children’s stories that are beautifully illustrated by watercolor in full color with glossy pages. The illustrations could be kind of scary–they were artistic, but not childish or cartoonish. The stories were involved, with lot of text.
One was about a dragon that had a toothache because a baker’s apprentice brought him so many cookies and donuts. Another about the Chinese character Li Po trying to get the moon in a cup.
Another about dangerous mountainous adventures.

  1. I was wondering if you had found the title of this children’s book? I am also looking for the same one I believe, specifically the story of the dragon in the village and to stop him eating the people the baker would bake donuts (I want to say pink iced ones) for the dragon to eat. The dragon eats soo many that everyone in the village hears the dragon crying in pain. They make a deal and the tooth is taken away but he must not eat anyone. This memory might be a bit rough and confused with other stories, it was read when I was about 5 years old at primary school. The book had watercolour illustrations and is a huge book. It is similar to the Muffin Muncher… That’s not it though.
