Summary
In the same series as the hugely popular Japanese Children's Favorite Stories and Filipino Children's Favorite Stories, this volume presents a charming collection of well-loved myths and tales from Bali. Comprising 12 stories that have been told by mothers to children over the centuries, the tales cover classic childhood themes -- good versus evil, children versus adults, and so on. The stories have appeared previously in a different form, but never so clearly and in such a way that the beauty of Bali and its fascinating culture is evoked so well. Narrated with an international audience in mind and illustrated with whimsical watercolors by Trina Bohan-Tyrie, Balinese Children's Favorite Stories will enchant six- to ten-year-old readers all over the world
