Do you know one of the oldest Japanese folkstories, 'Kaguya-hime'.
Maybe you can call it 'Tale of the Bamboo Cutter' in English.

As I was browsing at a bookstore, I came across with an ad of 'La Princesa Noche Resplandeciente'. It's a beautifully illustrated children's book by Philip Giordano, based on Japanese fairy tale of 'Kaguyahime'.
Although I don't understand Spanish language, I'm delighted to know that a Spanish illustrater picked our beautiful and sad legend.
