Kintaro, the Nature Boy by Ralph F. McCarthy, Suiho Yonai

This legend of Kintaro is one of Japan's most enduring and popular children's stories. Kintaro was raised in a mountain forest by his beautiful young mother, and his gentle nature and prodigious strength win him the love and admiration of all the forest creatures. Eventually recruited by a famous samurai lord, the boy goes on to earn fame and fortune after conquering a band of evil demons.

Suiho Yonai's rich, dramatic illustrations have been inseparable from the image of Kintaro in the minds of Japanese children for over fifty years; now Ralph F McCarthy's lilting verse brings this tale to life for English-speaking children everywhere.
