The Adventure of Momotaro, the Peach Boy

by

The Adventure of Momotaro, the Peach Boy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perhaps the most beloved of all Japanese folk tales is the story of Momotaro, the boy born from a peach. Momotaro's expedition to the Land of the Demons, accompanied by his faithful companions, the Dog, the Monkey, and the Pheasant, is filled with fun and excitement for all young readers.

One of five of the best-loved stories from Kodansha's Children's Classics series, printed in a smaller format with the original Japanese beside the English translation - and all with the same delightful illustrations.

Synopsis:

Perhaps the most beloved of all Japanese folk tales is Momotaro's expedition to the Land of the Demons, accompanied by his companions, the Dog, the Monkey, and the Pheasant.
