Learning to read Japanese is a little like running a marathon: it
is a long, drawn out process, and it can get a little boring along
the way. What we learners of Japanese need is a little fun now and
then, something that brings a smile to our faces. As luck would
have it, this book does just that. This magic trick is accomplished
by the book's nine curious stories. Taken from the weekly magazine
"Shukan Asahi," these stories, while true to life, verge on the
hard to believe, and that's what evokes the magic element of fun.
