The Yellow Jar: Two Tales from Japanese Tradition by Patrick Atangan

This was a random read from Scribd that I picked up because I wanted to be introduced to some Japanese traditional tales.

As a graphic novel it is very unusual because the art is in a very traditional Japanese style that you would unusually see in woodcut art, but the illustrations completely suited the stories.

I much preferred the title story to the second one as it was a lot longer and more developed but I did enjoy this book overall and will probably read the second collection in the series.

If you are interested in Japanese folklore, do give this a go as I think the format and storytelling was unusual compared to other books I’ve read.

3 out of 5 stars!
