Largely unknown in the West, Grace James’s delightful collection of traditional Japanese fairy tales surprises, charms and amuses. Enter the magical world of evil boggarts, ghostly flutes, the original Three Wise Monkeys, and a tea-kettle that transforms into a dancing badger.

An enchanting read for adults and children alike. Contains 38 fairy tales and all 16 original illustrations by Warwick Goble.

These tales, legends and myths have been collected from many sources, including the Ko-ji-ki or Record of Ancient Matters, and many form the basis of many traditional Japanese stage plays.
