Once Upon a Time in Japan A selection of eight much loved, traditional Japanese folk tales, each richly illustrated by one of 4 different artists and with an audio CD.. Readers will find some familiar elements: such as in both The Monkey and the Crabs and the Fox and the Otter in which greed and selfishness get their just desserts or The Magical Hood where the protagonist's kindness is rewarded. Other tales such as Sleepyhead Taro and The Children and The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter will engage with their originality.
