お菊さん

Rating: ★★★★★

この本はちょっとこわいです。おきくさんと言う女の人が死んでゆうれいになる話です。でもすごくおもしろかっ田です。日本語1年生にはちょっとむずかしいかもしれません。There quite a few expressions/verbs that we haven’t learned in 日本語1。But if you love ghost stories, this is a really good one. The pictures also explain the story pretty well, until at least halfway.

タクシー

Rating: ★★★★

このほんはおもしろいすが、ちょうどこわいですね。The story is about a girl who believed that she was still alive even though she already died in a car accident three days ago. Her soul took a taxi to go back to home.  The whole story centers around the conversation between the taxi driver and the girl’s mom. The taxi driver learned from the girl’s mom that the girl who took the taxi was not a real human. The tone of the story is warm, but the story itself can be scary to younger-age readers.

I recommend the book to students who have learned Japanese for at least one year. As a 日本語のいねんせい who have only taken Japanese for one semester, I had difficulties with vocabularies while reading the book. でも、I recommend students who are good at Kanji to try on this book, because there are many kanji in this book. Also, the pictures in the book are very helpful for readers to grab the gist of the story.

この本を初めて読んだ時、私は本に出て来る漢語の意味が分かれなかったから、あまりおもしろくなかったですけど、後に漢語の意味をさがして、本の内容がおもしろくなりました。よんでください。作家は特別そうぞうりょくを持っています。小さい弟が姉の目に入ることはとても一般的ではないそうぞうりょくで生まれたと思います。

This story book is has a very creative story of Maimai and Nainai’s short adventure. Maimai finds a younger brother who is so tiny that Maimai’s parents can’t see him, but only Nainai can. When Maimai takes Nainai who lives in a walnut shell to the woods, a horse comes running at Maimai, damaging her right eye. Nainai goes into Maimai’s right eye and explores the world while Maimai is asleep. One day Nainai grabs Maimai’s dreams by the tail and pulls it in Maimai’s head, making Maimai impossible to stop dreaming.  However, unfortunately Nainai gets pulled into the dream, making Maimai to forever look for Nainai in her dreams.

この本とてもこわい話です。男の子は変な音を聞きます。そして。。。

この本はぜんぜん漢字を使えません。単語や文法は難しないですが知らない言葉と文法がありますからとてもいい本だと思います。絵は面白いです。読んでください。

I recommend this book to anyone who likes scary stories. It isn’t a hard read and only takes a few minutes, but the art and story are very creepy.
