This revised version of the popular anthology series features 13 short works from famous Japanese authors and classic world literature, carefully curated for Japanese elementary students in 2nd grade. As this series is often used by teachers in mock Junior High entrance exams and lesson plans, this collection is also an excellent resource for adults preparing to take the JLPT.

Nobuko Oka, the series editor, encourages readers to read each story or poem many times in order to increase retention and comprehension and to help foster a lifelong love for reading. To help with these goals, this revised edition features a new “Doorway to the Masterpieces” section at the end of the book with new notes meant to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the stories.


This book contains:

  • Six Japanese stories, four world classic tales, two poems, and a “Play with Words” section that lists Japanese palindromes.
  • A 16-page quiz and reading notes section with answers at the end.
  • Over 30 full-color and black-and-white illustrations that bring these stories to life, including cover art by Studio Ponoc, creator of the hit anime “Mary and the Witch’s Flower.”


The Japanese stories include “The Changing Frogs,” which follows two spiteful frogs of different colors as they learn to get along after hibernation, and “Kisha Dog,” recounting the tale of a boy and his feisty friends, and the heroic dog that rescues one of them from the river.

The world classics include Russian folktale “The Animals Winter Quarters,” Oscar Wilde’s “The Selfish Giant,” Indian folktale “The Flying Hanuman,” and “The Second Voyage of Sinbad,” where the hero Sinbad finds himself stranded on an island with the enormous legendary bird, the Roc.
