European Fairy Tales in Japanese

My browsing in the Kinokuniya Bookstore (see yesterday's Otogicco post) also discovered a rounder full of picture books. I couldn't read the titles, but the illustrations were easy enough to interpret.

Once again, these were taken with my iPhone so they are not the best quality photos, but I am am showing them anyway.

There were many more titles, many that were Japanese tales, too, but the number of European tales was surprising.

This photo is the worst, but I can't exclude Cinderella...

Wouldn't it be fun to read what the literal translations of the names and stories are when translated into English?


  1. you sell all this books? Because I want to buy them..

  2. I actually have the English version of the Cinderella one. Man, that was a long time ago...
