Crackle Mountain, my folktale blog, has been updated with a new story called Tamamo - The Fox Maiden, a folktale from Japan. Its been newly adapted by me, Florence Forrest. I hope you enjoy the story and the illustrations I've sourced to bring the tale to life.
The picture here is of a fox, or in Japanese - Kitsune. This is a card from a Japanese game called Obake Karute (Monster Cards) from the early 19th century. Each card features a monster from Japanese mythology. Source Wikipedia. A set of these would sooo be on my wish list!
