Format: Kindle Edition
Not too childish and a nice way of gaining a little insight into the stories that Japanese parents might be telling their children at bedtime. No pictures on the kindle fire version as mentioned by the previous reviewer.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic buy! This is the best copy of this book that I have ever seen. The drawings are clear and sharp. Unlike some another copy I bought from a different publisher. This is NOT a facsimile. Well worth the money. After reading this book I was really excited that a company is actually making an effort to do a good job. Unlike some other publishers that sell photocopy ripoffs.

Not well formatted for the Kindle 7 April 2009
By B. Tackitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
the stories are wonderful. a few of them match some of the stoies we heard while living in Okinawa with the military.

HOWEVER, I cannot give the Kindle version a 5 star like I would like to, because the formatting is absolutely horrendous.

Kakoi! 11 Mar 2010

Since it was free I didn't really know what to expect but the stories are quite nice. Not all of them are light-hearted though and even with the ones with "happy endings" you still might not want to read them to kids.

Great book 13 July 2010
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a graet book on this set of Japanese Fairy Tales. When I first gt the book I was impressed with the cover it made me want to read it. The stories were great and the illustrations were good to. Its nice to see a book with illustrations. After being in contact the publisher I found out that there will be more books in this series.

Omoshiroi 6 Aug 2010
By Brian P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The stories in this book were very interesting and I enjoyed them. However, I do think it would be nice if the free Kindle edition contained the original illustrations. The same is true for most, if not all of the free classics for Kindle. But of course it is free.

Lost in translation 21 May 2012
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was not what I expected it to be. Some of the stories dron on forever and never get to a point. The translation is very odd and there are numerous typoes. What I had really been looking for was a Japanese mythology book and deicded to whet my appetite with this. This book was not anywhere near as enjoyable as the Japanese fairy tale book I had as a child.
