Oni
  • Known as an invisible god which caused

    Oni could make himself invisible. This demon
    figures prominently in several Japanese
    folktales.
  • Also, there can be several Oni in one
    folktale!

Think of many, varied, and unusual ways to
describe a protagonist.

    Inexperienced? Frightened? Brave? Predictable?

    Female? Male? An animal? A fast thinker?
  • A protagonist can be any and all of the above.

  • As we read, think about the following
  • What is the purpose? To entertain? To teach a
    lesson? What makes you think the story was meant
    to be heard?
  • Who is the protagonist, and who is the
    antagonist?
  • We will stop at line 25 to make a prediction and
    create an ending that we think might be suitable
    to the story.
  • We will now read The Funny Little Woman, a
    short folktale from Japan.
