"This is one of my favourite books for reading practice... it's been great for learning new words. Each double page spread of the stories have the English version on the left and Japanese on the right. This makes it super easy to reference translations. What's even better is that all the vocab from the stories is compiled in a list at the end of each story. It's kind of like a reading book and dictionary in one." -- Michelle Studies Japan, manga and Japanese language influencer
