The Adult Storybook is an album by New Tokyo Terror, a project of Joanna Wang.[1] The album was included as a second disc in the release of Joanna & Wang Ruo-lin, her second album. Wang has stated that the songs that became The Adult Storybook were the work she sought to release as her second album, but her record company insisted on material that they saw as more commercial: 'My own album ended up being a "buy one get this as a bonus disc" next to the array of songs we ended up adding.'[2]
