*Received via NetGalley for review*

Definitely packed full of stories! Which means, of course, that the quality of them is a mixed bag. All of the art was well done (even if some of it wasn't my style -that's how it's going to be in a collection!), and the lettering serviceable (expect for a few where the lettering isn't quite dark enough - hopefully something that will be fixed in publication).

Two main issues: it should be made clearly on the title page for the story where the folktale originates from, rather than just in the table of contents; some of the stories don't really add anything or seem incomplete. Maybe this is a cultural difference, because Western audiences are used to fairy tales and myths having clear endings, usually with morals, and maybe this isn't the case in Asian folklore. But a few (like "From the Journey of the Monkey King" and "The Three Ryhymsters") are only a few pages and are too short to really provide any punch.

"Frog Skin," "Gold Sister, Silver Sister, and Wood Sister," and "The Flying Orge" are the best of the bunch. ( )

diverse children's middlegrade graphic novel (Asian stories from various cultures retold by different graphic artists)
terrific collection of stories from a wide selection of Asian cultures, for grades 4th and up (they would entertain teens and adults, as well, but are PG). The only thing I was disappointed with was the western looks (long, light-colored hair) of the wife in "The Frog Skin" story, that seemed like an odd element of cultural white-washing that didn't need to be there. Other than that, I really enjoyed this high-quality compilation of diverse stories reimagined by different, acclaimed graphic novelists (some of them with Asian backgrounds) with different drawing and storytelling styles.

A neat collection of tales from Asia, each adapted and drawn by different authors/artists. ( )

The Lucky Teapot [4 stars]
I enjoyed it, the personality of the characters, the artwork, and the story.

#Endoftheworld [2 stars]
I was surprised by the role social media played in the story. A story with a cute misunderstanding.

The Great Flood [3 stars]
Again, I enjoyed the art style a lot. It’s so cartoony. Heavy inspiration from Noah’s Ark.

The Demon with the Matted Hair [2 stars]
Knowledge is power.

Frog Skin [3.5 stars]
Interesting story!

The Girl Who Married a Tiger [3 stars]
When being clever saves the day!

Ghost Pepper [3 stars]
The facial expressions are hilarious. Love the ending.

Two Foxes [2 stars]
I liked the artwork.

After the Rain: The Origin of the Rainbow [3 stars]

From the Journal of the Monkey King [ 1 star]
Felt too abrupt.

Urashima Taro [3 stars]


The Ballad of Mulan [3 stars]

The Tiger, The Brahmin, and the Jackal [4 stars]

Tongue Cut Sparrow [ 3.5 stars]

The Legend of Asena [ 4 stars]
I love happy endings.

I really liked the art.

Gold sister, Silver Sister, and Wood Sister [3 stars]

Heavy.

This read was an amalgamated graphic novel and folklore from various Asian cultures mashup. For me it was a hit or miss scenario. Many of the stories were new to me and their ratings varied wildly. The History of the Spectre Ship was awesome and Frog Skin was Rumpelstiltskin-ish. My favorite by far was The Tongue Cut Sparrow which was poignant and a bit horrifying (even if it was just desserts). There were a couple I didn't get, like Two Foxes and The Flying Ogre. The stories were basically judged on: if lessons were learned, was the moral conveyed, and was the writing style and graphics written well and drawn nicely. Is that shallow? I don't think so...it simply is what it is.

Overall:

The stories, for the most part, were intriguing (especially the ones where lessons were learned), engaging and new (for me). The varying graphics were interesting and showcased quite a lot of talent. Unfortunately, this is a one time read sort of book (for me) but I can definitely see parents sitting down with young ones and going over some of these tales repeatedly. SO, what's the verdict? It's a mixed bag of nuts (for me) and that is why the rating reflects it. Is it worth the time? Yes! Would I recommend it to a friend? Maybe, it would depend entirely on the friend and their reading preferences BUT ultimately it's a fun way to spend some time!
