Issun Boshi: The One-Inch Boy

  • $ 19.95

Once, in a country far away, there lived a peasant farmer and his wife. They had no children and every day, to lift their spirits on the walk to and from the fields, they sang: "We'd like a little boy, any size at all. We'd like him little, we'd like him small. We'd love him tiniest of all." A miracle happened. They had a child. But -- and this hardly came as a surprise -- he really was tiny. And they called him Issun Boshi, "the One-Inch Boy." 

Based on a traditional Japanese folktale.
