Item description for The Moon Princess (Kodansha Bilingual Children's Classics) by Ralph F. McCarthy & Kancho Oda...

An old bamboo cutter finds a tiny child in the hollow of a bamboo stalk. Thus begins the beloved story of the Moon Princess, whose unearthly beauty brings her fame and would-be husbands from throughout the land, but whose destiny shines far off in the sky. The delicate color and detail of Kancho Oda's illustrations, painted over half a century ago, create a mood of charm and mystery, admirably accompanied by the lilting verse of writer, translator, and lyricist Ralph F. McCarthy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Moon Princess (Kodansha Bilingual Children's Classics)?

Good book for children learning Japanese  Jul 26, 2008
We've used our copy to teach our children as well as to use for storytime in their school room. The book is well made, easy to follow, and affordable (look for this site's 4-for-3 promotion to save some money).

Good book for Japanese learners  Dec 3, 2007
Traditional Japanese story with nice illustrations. Not the best book but it's a good choice.
Nicer than others  Aug 16, 2005
This is a traditional japanese story, that I chose because for a japanese language student is a very good way to practice comprehension skills. It is also a nice story cause it contains no fatal punishment for any deed like other similar stories do, it is about what lies mean and of filial love. Other stories, instead, like Sarukani, The monkey an the Crab, are full of cruelty, something that clearly reflects the mentality of an era, in which there is no space for forgivness and the only posible punishment is allways fatal, with a previous list of torturing actions. Anyway, any of this bilingual stories can be of great help to students of japanese, best if you are trying to acquire a broad vocabulary, it only requires the search of the respective kanji and you are done with it.
