This colorfully illustrated multicultural children's book presents Japanese fairy tales and other folk stories-providing insight into a vibrant literary culture. Her distinguished career spanned five decades, and she continued working until her death in 1999 at the age of 82. Yoshisuke Kurosaki (1905-1984) studied at the Kawabata Painting school and illustrated children's books from around 1927 until his death.

Compiled by Florence Sakade. Illustrated by Yosbisuke Kurosaki. And it's no wonder why. In these magical stories, good is rewarded and evil punished, statues come to life to repay a kindness, and, with a little self-confidence, even a boy who's only one inch tall can become a great hero.

We’re dedicated to reader privacy so we never track you. With such titles as "The Toothpick Warriors" and "The Rabbit Who Crossed the Sea," these 20 stories offer age-old lessons in kindness and goodness that are still riveting to children and parents alike.

Delightful collection of Japanese folk/fairy tales that definitely target children. This one too, I think my mom bought them for us in the late. stories i read growing up. The World’s Largest Independent Bookstore. Loved them as a child.

Florence Sakade has compiled 20 of Japan's best children's stories. First assembled in 1953, these stories have been redone with updated drawings.

In this collection are 15 of the Japanese traditional stories that have captivated the hearts of children through generation after generation. Included also are two very popularly read stories, "The Dragon's Tears" and "Why the Red Elf Cried," which are originals by the leading contemporary writer of children's stories in Japan, Hirosuke Hamada, who has been devoting over 40 years of his life in writing stories for children. "Kintaro's Adventures," retold by Genichi Kume, is another interesting modern version based on the traditional story of "Kintaro." 90 new and charming illustrations, including 12 in full color. Stated 2nd Revised Edition.
Good sampling of Japanese folk tales, but:

1) some stories have disturbing/weird details that I omitted for my 5-year-old daughter. Old woman cutting off a sparrow’s tongue?.. A bunny rabbit who wants to jump into the caldron to boil itself alive as a present to a guest? A puppy being killed by a neighbor, and a gift tree growing over its corpse? As they say “it’s unclear what they audience is”. Don’t get me wrong: I like spooky and macabre stuff myself, but I was planning to read this to a little kid. Having said that, this happens only in a few stories. Most of the rest are fine.

2) the drawings are not really good and not really made in an East Asian style. They are mostly in “7th grader learns to draw” style, which can be endearing in and of itself, but not necessarily in this literary setting.

3) some of the names were clearly mistranslated. I don’t know Japanese, but it was obvious that some names which were supposed to be poetic were clunky in translation.

Overall, it’s a nice book though. My daughter liked it, when I augmented some of the stories and omitted some of the creepier ones.
Being half Japanese, these stories remind me of my mom ... Just be aware that the Japanese like to teach their children lessons and some of the stories do not have the “happily ever after” endings we are used to in the United States. I purchased 2 of these that I gave to adults in Japan studying English. They had familiar stories written in English and they loved it. Sweet illustrations also.
This is a book from my childhood. I was so
pleased that they had this available. You'll enjoy
it if you like tales of Japanese folklore. The Rabbit
in the Moon is a good example. I grew up
believing in this tale and to this day, still look for
the Rabbit in in the Moon!
Stories from my childhood. I couldn't believe I found this book almost exactly as mine from 50 years ago. Given as a gift and the recipient loved it.
One of my wife's favorite books as a child it has brought back great memories through a series of teaching stories.
A wonderful collection of enchanting stories for young children, 3-7 years old. We have read from it since my boy was 3 years old - it is one of the very few books that have kept with him for a long period (he is now 5.5). I figure that he will be able to read the stories himself pretty soon, making this volume one of a handful of books that can be read to him and by him.
The stories are imaginative, full of fantasy, culturally different yet appealing to "standard" elements of the children's minds. The plots are interesting to the children, who quickly learn them by heart and ask for specific stories night after night. The drawings are marvelous. The fact that there are multiple, independent stories, makes it easy to customize the lenght of the day's reading as needed.
Of the many books that my boy has this is definitely one of the best, from his point of view as well as from mine. The wonderful illustrations, evocative of some of Miyazaki's magnificent animated movies, only add to the attraction of this exceptional book.
Aaaah, great book...brings back memories of all the Japanese fables I read as a child. Bought this for my granddaughter. She loves it. The book has colorful pictures and great stories. Not a board book, so keep them away from unsupervised prying little hands.
This book is very special to me as it was a dear part of my childhood growing up in a Japanese American household in the early 1960s. When I was about three years old, one of my "uncles" gave this book to me with a pink hardcover and it has stayed dear to my heart since. I was quite delighted to see it still in print and being offered here on Amazon. What's even more amazing, is that from what I can tell by the image previews for this newest edition, the illustrations are the very same ones as my forty-some-odd year old book. This collection of stories would be similar to a Japanese Grimm's Fairy Tales and were also part of my father's childhood in 1920s Japan. Overall, they are quite simple and to the point and have a cuteness typical of Japanese stories. In recent years, my ex-girlfriend had enjoyed listening to me tell her these stories at bedtime even from my 40 year memory. I'm sure I've mangled some of them and combined them into a hybrid monkey, ogre, old man, cookie tale. I've been meaning to find my original copy, but now I know I can relive my childhood with a fresh new copy.
