Tibetan Folk Tales:

Jataka Tales are ancient fables that have been passed down from one generation to the next, as a code of conduct and a guideline for good moral behavior. They are not just stories that preach about the difference between right and wrong. They are charmingly witty narratives, each of which has an important message to convey. These stories are mainly about pass incarnation of Buddha.
