BEIJING, April 27 (Xinhua) -- Musical "Monsters in the Forbidden City" will hit the stage in Tianjin on May 1, marking the start of its national tour.

Adapted from the children's book series of the same title by Chang Yi, a Bing Xin Children's Literature Award winner, the musical tells the adventures of Li Xiaoyu, a little girl who broke into the world of the monsters by mistake and became friends with a dragon's son.

"I want children to know that mysterious stories happen around us, not just in Europe or the United States," said Chang Yi, original author and screenwriter of the musical.

The musical will also tour other cities across the country, including Beijing, Dezhou, Shanghai, Handan, Zhuhai, Guangzhou, Zhongshan, Shenzhen and Nanjing.
