Set in tropical rainforests, on balmy beaches, and in the remote highlands of the Indonesian islands, Indonesian Children's Favorite Stories
offers a taste of how universal values of bravery, cleverness, true love, kindness and loyalty are transmitted to Indonesian children. Astute princesses, resourceful villagers and daring travelers appear throughout this vast archipelago to tell their stories and charm our children.
Retold for an international audience, these beautifully illustrated stories provide children with an insight into the traditional culture, morals and environment of Indonesia. This book is aimed at children in the five to twelve age group, but readers of all ages, young and old, will find much to enjoy within these pages.
