Includes 75-minute audio CD Playful goblins with long noses, magic tea kettles, and a delightfully brave hero who just happens to be one inch tall-these are some of the wonderful characters you'll meet in this collection of the 20 best-loved Japanese children's stories. Drawn from folklore and passed down for generations, these classic tales speak of the virtues of hard work, humility, kindness, and good humor. "Once upon a time . . ." has never sounded so inviting.
Florence Sakade is the editor and author of numerous books on Japan, including A Guide to Reading and Writing Japanese, Origami: Japanese Paper Folding, Kintaro's Adventures and Urashima Taro.
