The San Francisco Chronicle Loves the Asian Folktales Retold Series!

The San Francisco Chronicle's Jeff Yang features our Asian Folktales Retold series in his Asian Pop Holiday Gift Guide this year:

Heian, a division of Asian culture specialist Stone Bridge Press, offers a striking set of picture books translating some of Asia's most beloved traditional children's stories in its Asian Folktales Retold series; titles like "Vietnamese Tales of Rabbits and Watermelons" and "Indonesian Tales of Treasures and Brides" show an appealing tongue-in-cheekiness, while fanciful hand-painted illustrations depict the fables, yet leave plenty of room for growing imaginations.
