Herein are 35 Japanese Children’s Fairy Stories taken from the Wonderlore of Japan – and plentiful it is. Japanese lore was well already established when Europe was starting to emerge from the Dark Ages. Compiled in the 19th C. by W E Griffis these stories have been illustrated by Ozawa of Tokio which bring a further dimension to the tales.
You will fascinating find stories like:
  • The Meeting of the Star Lovers,
  • The Travels of Two Frogs,
  • The Child of the Thunder,
  • The Fire-fly's Lovers,
  • The Battle of the Ape and the Crab,
  • The Wonderful Tea-Kettle and many, many more.

The thirty-five stories included within this volume do not contain the usual bloody, and sometimes licentious, elements, with which Japanese popular, and juvenile literature seems to be saturated. These have been avoided to create a volume of children’s stories containing folklore, fairy tales, myths, legends suitable for a western audience.

So sit back with steaming beverage and prepare to be entertained for hours.
