Book Description from Back Cover

Stories that delight the children of one land are sure to delight children everywhere. In the present volume are collected twenty of Japan's most-loved children's stories, told over and over again in many versions to the never-ending delight of children, generation after generation. Here are the playful goblins with long noses; the magic teakettle with badger feet and badger tail; Little One-Inch and his needle-sword; and many more beloved characters.

In response to the wide acclaim from teachers, parents, and children alike all over the world for the first edition of this book, it has now been completely revised, with new stories, and with entirely new illustrations throughout by Yoshisuke Kurosaki, one of Japan's most noted illustrators of children's books. The 90 new and charming illustrations, including 12 in full color, are in the typical Japanese style, adding double interest and authenticity to the fascinating stories themselves.

Such stories as these, while appealing to children everywhere, are still true expressions of Japanese character and customs. As such they are sure to create a sympathetic understanding for the culture and ways of another land.
