Great collection of classic Japanese fairy tales. Illustrations are also well done. I was surprised how often elements of these stories popped up in Japanese movies and animes.

Fantastic read. I enjoyed this book and easily recommend it both for children and adults.

Japanese Children's Favorite Stories: I think it, the book, tells of some interesting tales; perhaps some these tales seem like they could qualify to be or be of verisimilitude nature to that of Aesop fables. I wanted to have a better basis of core concept of where Japanese base core concept mindset might be...and I wanted to see if this anthology of simple like stories might be of some service to me. The stories seem simple and are relatively short as in comparison to the obviously abundant in length, modern novels...many of these stories and their corresponding pages purely represent simplicity and virtue that all of us children of this unknown and vast world should personally have and personally-piously possess. Rating: 4.4/5.0 -Xandor Who
