Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Japanese Fairy Tales is a delightful introduction to the culture of Japan through its traditional children's stories. First published in the early 20th Century by Yei Theodora Ozaki, the fairy tales have been translated and adapted for a Western audience but retain their own unique charm. They feature animals and humans, creatures normal and fantastical, peasants and kings. Stories include Momotaro, or the Story of the Son of a Peach; The Stones of Five Colors and the Empress Jokwa; The Sagacious Monkey and the Boar; and The Ogre of Rashomon. Whether you are interested in Japanese culture, fairy tales, or just an interesting bedtime story, you'll find these tales hard to put down.
