I loved this little treasure trove from Taiwan, which is why I'm giving it 5 stars. I really wish it had more stories, and I followed up reading this book by looking for other versions of some of the tales, and ran across Mr. Lobb's fascinating blog.

Thank you for such a treasure, Mr. Lobb.

It's great. The stories are short little nuggets of Taiwan culture. I'm currently living in Taiwan so this book gave me a greater appreciation for its diverse beliefs and myths. Thumbs up from me.
