Book Review/Giveaway: Tales of Fairies and Japanese Folktales for Children. Ends Sept 16th
About the Book: A children’s book of Fairy Stories and Poems about fairies. http://zeluna.net/fairy-stories
My Review: If you love fairies tales you will like this book of stories and poems about fairies. The author did a great job translating the Japanese stories to English.
This book is interesting to read. The water colors and pencil illustration by the author helps tell the stories. Read all about:
The treasure stone of the fairies a Welsh Fairy Tale
Lucky Lanto a Welsh Fairy Tale
King Reinhold a German Fairy Tale
The Old Man and the Fairies a Celtic Fairy Tale
The Elves and their Antics a Dutch Fairy Tale
The poems in the book included work from Shakespeare and Thomas Moore.
About the Story: Discover the magical and often whimsical world of Japanese fairy tales. This book includes seven fairy tales and illustrations.
My Review: Japanese Folktales for Children is a collection of Japanese fairy tales. The stories are The Laughing Dumpling, Crane Feathers, The Badger and the Snail, The Yokai, The Mountain Kami and the Ugly Fish, The Two Frogs, and The Witch of the Mountain.
The first story is the Laughing Dumpling, about an old woman who laughed at everything. She laughted at rain, she laughed at drought, proverty but never had a chance to laugh at wealth, for she was very, very poor. She makes and sells rice dumplings and the people named her the laughing dumpling.
Great use of pencil and watercolor for the illustrations which will help children to identify the characters of the stories.
FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of these books from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
