This story told in a cheeky, energetic voice is translated into stunning illustrations … This book stands out both for its artwork and the engaging text. (White Raven's Catalogue of World's Best Children's Books)
This is a rich combination of story and art. Kanchil, the mouse deer and Monyet, the monkey are best friends. One day, Monyet climbs a tree the two friends have planted together and starts to eat up the fruit - all by himself. Clever Kanchil quickly thinks of a way to get even with Monyet...Kanchil is possibly the most loved figure in Indonesian folklore. He deserves to be better known by children all over the world and with this deft and humorous re-telling of a classic trickster tale, storyteller and performer Nathan Kumar Scott will win Kanchil many new fans. The story is accompanied by exquisite art in the traditional Kalamkari style of Indian textile painting, by master craftsman T. Balaji. Painted on cloth, the images in the book have been created using the elaborate original process, with bamboo pens and vegetable dyes. The combination of story and art in this rich book echoes an old Asian connection: in the 18th century, traditional hand painted Kalamkari cloth from India reached Indonesia through the colonial textile trade and became instantly popular.See all Product description
