About the Author

English writer Grace James (1864–1930) is best known for the John and Mary books, a series of adventure stories for children. James grew up in Japan and wrote a memoir of her experiences, Japan: Recollections and Impressions, as well as compilations of folklore, including The Moon Maiden and Other Japanese Fairy Tales and The Three Dwarf Trees.
Warwick Goble (1862–1943) produced lovely watercolor paintings that perfectly illustrated fairy tale subjects. Specializing in Japanese and Indian themes, he became famous for illustrating both magazines and books. Goble worked as a resident illustrator for Macmillan, where he created dazzling images for The Modern Reader's Chaucer, Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and other classics.

The previous reviewer must have had a different edition than the one I have on the table in front of me. ASIN/ISBN number is correct for this Amazon listing -- 0517632101. It is illustrated by Warwick Groble, there are 16 full color, very attractive plates. It might be a good idea to contact the bookseller you are thinking of buying from & inquiring as to whether their copy has color plates, but don't pass on this lovely book on account of no color illustrations -- It DOES have them and they are spectacular.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a pretty great book, if you remember that it was written in 1910. The terms and romanized words are not modernized so it's not as authentic as other Japanese-lore books. I enjoyed reading this book for class as I had to do a presentation on it but I'd like to remind everyone that as of the mid-2000's this book has been converted and is available free at no cost in the internet archive. The colored plates are also included in the digital version in the archive.

**The archive is a legal gathering of other texts that were converted to digital files to preserve and share the books.

Don't buy this book, Om the front page they say there are color illustrations, but there are only very badly copied black and white illustrations in this book.
