But, to his surprise, no tanuki was there, nothing but the kettle he had found in the corner. It was certainly very odd, but the man remembered what had taken place on the fire, and did not want to keep the kettle any more, so after a little bargaining about the price, Jimmu went away carrying the kettle with him. Now Jimmu had not gone very far before he felt that the kettle was getting heavier and heavier, and by the time he reached home he was so tired that he was thankful to put it down in the corner of his room, and then forgot all about it.

In the middle of the night, however, he was awakened by a loud noise in the corner where the kettle stood, and raised himself up in bed to see what it was. But nothing was there except the kettle, which seemed quiet enough. He thought that he must have been dreaming, and fell asleep again, only to be roused a second time by the same disturbance.

He jumped up and went to the corner, and by the light of the lamp that he always kept burning he saw that the kettle had become a tanuki, which was running round after his tail. After he grew weary of that, he ran on the balcony, where he turned several somersaults, from pure gladness of heart. The tradesman was much troubled as to what to do with the animal, and it was only towards morning that he managed to get any sleep; but when he opened his eyes again there was no tanuki, only the old kettle he had left there the night before. As soon as he had tidied his house, Jimmu set off to tell his story to a friend next door.

The man listened quietly, and did not appear so surprised as Jimmu expected, for he recollected having heard, in his youth, something about a wonder-working kettle. Jimmu thanked his friend for his counsel, which he followed exactly.

They came in crowds, and the kettle was passed from hand to hand, and they were allowed to examine it all over, and even to look inside. Then Jimmu took it back, and setting it on the platform, commanded it to become a tanuki. In an instant the handle began to change into a head, and the spout into a tail, while the four paws appeared at the sides. The 8 and 9 year olds are likely to enjoy the fantastic transformation of the teakettle. They are also likely to appreciate some humor in the interruption of the tea ceremony and the pupils chasing the teakettle in the temple, as well as the image of the badger dancing across a tightrope.

The 8 and 9 year olds are also likely to appreciate the opportunity to enjoy something of the flavor of another culture. I didn't find any mention of this story in formal reviewing sources, however it was found in, and recommended by the editors of several anthologies in which it appeared, including both. New York: Avenel Books, Philadelphia: JB Lippincott Company, Tales of Old Japan.

New York: Macmillan Company, Mitford's version was the oldest I found and also the briefest.
