Review Text

  • By Zack Davisson on September 22, 2002

    Dover Children's Thrift Classics produces yet another excellent collection of folk tales from old Japan, with "Japanese Fairy Tales."The stories in this book are as familiar to every Japanese child as "The Tortoise and the Hare," "The Ugly Duckling" or "Little Red Riding Hood" are familiar to Western children. These are the classic tales.As with other Dover Children's Thrift Classics, the stories are very suited for young readers, in large type and using easy language. The book is small, with about 90 pages. Along with the stories are 14 black-and-white illustrations. The stories in this book where compiled by Yei Ozaki in 1903 for the "The Japanese Fairy Book." Each tale is authentic and unabridged.Included are; "Momotaro, or the Story of the Son of a Peach," "The Tongue-cut Sparrow," "The Story of Princess Hase," "The Story of Urashima Taro, the Fisher Lad," and "The Ogre of Rashomon."I highly recommend this book to any young reader or parent wanting to explore Japan and it's Fairly Tales. Learning foreign folk tales can often be a gate way to a bigger world, and explain the heart and morals of a culture.
