Excellent, and very old, Japanese fable. The translation is quite well done, not an easy thing for a book that depends so much on plays of language. Anime fans, read this and watch for two things--the feather robe from Ceres and the robe of the fire rat from Inuyasha. I'm not sure if this is the source of those (I suspect it is) but both are mentioned here.
