Review:


"Will captivate readers. Retold in droll, boisterous verse, this tale features many of the common themes running through Western fairytales, yet retains a uniquely Japanese flavor. The series will be a worthy addition to the multicultural bookshelf." -Publishers Weekly
"Brimming with the familiar and great themes of loyalty, courage and generosity." -Asahi Evening News
