I have finally adapted this tale for Crackle Mountain. I have had the images ready of a few weeks but have not found the time to sit down and write it. But I'm glad to say that I have now published this very funny Japanese folktale. If you have a few minuites to spare pop over to my Asian Folktale blog and read The Elves and The Envious Neighbour - Japanese Folktale.
The image above is a woodblock print by Ando Hiroshigi, 1830-1844, Japan. This camp fire scene title is listed as No. 33 Motoyama.
