Imaginative, adventurous, and simply a darling children's book.  Now I've got to trackdown the movie version and see how close it got.

Had seen "paleo" floating around and wanted to know what it is.  This book was informative and really cut to the chase.  It provided links to find more details.  I tried the diet for a week and it worked!  I lost 3.5 lbs.  But troubles started and I went back to my bad eating habits! :(

I like Asian storries and this folklore retelling was cute and sweet.  I enjoyed learning about this particular new year's tradition of the Japanese people with the added bonus of a fun portrayer of the seven gods of luck.  Awesome!

Magical looking illustrations and of couse the story's a classic.  Glad this edition didn't stray from the original.
