An original fairy tale with unusual atmospheres, which narrates the adventures of a group of bakedanuki, the friendly Japanese raccoon dogs, projecting young readers into the magical world of yōkai, the ghosts of traditional folklore. In the legends of Japan, bakedanuki are considered supernatural creatures, somewhat naïve and absent-minded, who love to play pranks, change their shape and disguise themselves. One of them starts the adventure and transforms into a spirit with the curious appearance of a paper lantern. The other little animals follow him, and they change into a demon mask, into a woman with an incredibly long neck, into a child with only one eye and so on... One of them, however, maintains his appearance: he has to face a test of courage, walking along a narrow, dark path where his friends who have become ghosts are hidden, lurking. How will the little one left alone react? Will he be scared to death or will his playful nature take over? You will find out by browsing these pages.
