A reference guide to 468 stories and folktales from China, Japan, and Korea, this book aims to lead storytellers, folklorists, teachers, and librarians to both popular and lesser-known East Asian stories. Selected for their multicultural appeal to both listeners and readers, the included stories are divided cross-culturally into chapter by broad subject categories, from tales of supernatural love and devotion to stories dealing with Tengu, Tokkaebi, and other mystical creatures. After summarizing each story, the guide also reveals where the complete tale and all of its variants can be found. The book includes a comprehensive title index along with a subject index which leads readers to stories dealing with specific topics or locales. Two Appendices provide a list of stories organized by country and a selective glossary of terms.
