About the Author:

Florence Sakade was an experienced editor and author of numerous books about Japan, including Tuttle Publishing's Urashima Taro and Other Japanese Children's Stories, Little One-Inch and Other Japanese Children's Stories, and Peach Boy and Other Japanese Children's Stories.

Yoshio Hayashi was one of Japan's most noted illustrators of children's books. He also illustrated Urashima Taro and Other Japanese Children's Stories.

Review:

"The books have a generous, easy-to-handle size and the text is produced in a large font. Charmingly decorated endpapers welcome readers. All of the artwork—consisting of numerous full-page pictures and smaller detail illustrations—is in color. The delicate paintings blend traditional images with touches of gentle humor. Incorporating straightforward language and clear dialogue, the retellings are accessible to youngsters and read aloud smoothly." —School Library Journal
