From School Library Journal This solid addition to folklore collections is arranged by 14 major themes, with titles, origins, and variations by other tellers and/or countries noted. It includes tales of ethics, morals, nature, ghosts, heroes, animals, tricksters, the supernatural, and dreams. The author does not present the entire story: she summarizes each tale, provides information on the other ways it has been told, and where it also appears. This information is useful for research on tales from East Asia because many library holdings are weaker in that area than in materials from the Western traditions. The synopses of the story motifs are often lengthy, detailed, and more demanding of background in Asian cultures. In contrast, the synopses of motifs in Margaret Read MacDonald and Brian W. Sturm's The Storyteller's Sourcebook 1983–1999 (Gale, 2001) are brief and easier to understand. Still, this is an invaluable resource for teachers, experienced storytellers, and students of folklore from secondary school to university.—Judy Sokoll, Florida Storytelling Association, Naples Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Review "Solid addition to folklore collections...useful...an invaluable resource." --School Library Journal "Finding just the right story to illustrate a concept for a specific group is an art. It can be difficult, but The East Asian Story Finder will help...a very useful source for teachers, librarians, parents, storytellers, and clergy." --American Reference Books Annual
