The brave little boy who sailed to the Capital in a teacup and fought a demon with a needle to win the love of a lady is Japanese cousin to Tom Thumb The brave little boy who sailed to the Capital in a teacup and fought a demon with a needle to win the love of a Lady is a Japanese cousin to Tom Thumb good Great Just what I was looking for. Beautiful little book that tells an ancient story with flowing prose and incredible art. This little book is a treasure The illustrations are exquisite and move the story along The text is in both English AND in Japanesethat is amazing What a cool book for someone who speaks English and is studying Japanese or speaks Japanese and is studying Englishit would make a great resource.The story is retold from an old folktalethe rhyme is AMAZINGlilting and fun Kids will love hearing how the little hero goes out to seek his fortune and become a samuraiand how he demonstrates great bravery and rescues the damsel in distress Young children need great role modelsthe Inch High Samurai fits the bill It s a wonderful story about believing in oneself and shows that courage is not about being unafraidit is about doing what has to be done, even if you are.Vivian KirkfieldAuthor of Show Me How Build Your Child s Self Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking This book is very frustrating, they put the Japanese text in tiny lettering, they have this really nice page and they barely use any of it for the text Look at the first page and you ll see what I mean, not only is the text very small, but it s crammed in the lower right hand corner of the page, into the crease in the book The translation is lousy, the book opens up with mukashi, mukashi which should be translated as long long ago , but they have a completely different English text that does not correspond properly A lousy book if you re trying to learn Japanese I found a much better version on line for free at The Japanese Page Don t waste your money on this poorly presented and horrible translated junk Who ever approved the layout of this book should be fired for incompetence. sch ne Bilder, gute Verarbeitung Allerdings sollte man vor dem Kauf wissen, dass der japanische Text nicht direkt bersetzt, sondern nur sinngem bertragen wurde Ich habe zwar eine exakte bersetzung erwartet, aber die bertragung ist ganz gut gelungen.
