Reviews

Japanese Children's Favorite Stories is alive with characters, in illustration and in words. The characters and the stories they tell are delightful, enchanting and compelling it's no wonder this book has been in print for so long. Children with a connection to Japan will especially love reading these stories still relevant to a modern reader. Danielle Wright, author of Japanese Nursery Rhymes

About the Author

The late Florence Sakade was an experienced editor and author/compiler of many popular books on Japan such as A Guide to Reading and Writing Japanese, Origami: Japanese Paper Folding, and Japanese Children's Favorite Stories. Her distinguished career spanned five decades, and she continued working until her death in 1999 at the age of 82. Yoshisuke Kurosaki (1905-1984) studied at the Kawabata Painting school and illustrated children's books from around 1927 until his death. His work has helped define the style of Japanese children's book illustration in the 20th century.
