Author: Yei Theodora Ozaki

Go on, leave an iTunes Review:
Welcome my folk story lovers!

I have you an old 1908 Japanese Folk Story episode – letters compiled by one friend of author Yei Theodora Ozaki into a compilation of traditional Japanese folk tales.
And this time I have for you The Tongue-Cut Sparrow; a cruel old woman and her humble wife life with a sparrow. This said sparrow eats some of the starch the old wife leaves out, which leads to an adventure all unto it’s own.
Thank you so much for listening the #podcast mates! And a big thank you to all of you lovely contributors.
