Japanese Fairy Tales – Yei Theodora Ozaki

f5eb2925f93f2385969706b7041434f414f4141I found this book on one of my free and bargain Kindle newsletters. It was written (translated at the very least) at the turn of last century, so I’m guessing it’s in the public domain now.

It’s a nice little book. The stories don’t seem very Westernized – they definitely have fairy tale aspects, but sometimes they definitely don’t have the pat, Disney-fied ending I’ve certainly come to expect in my fairy tales. It’s a nice little volume for something different.
