About This Book

In a folktalke from Indonesia, a mischievous small deer cannot stop playing tricks on other jungle animals, even though they are a lot bigger and fiercer than he is. The other two stories tell of a singing rooster and a baby buffalo that must battle powerful fighters to bring good fortune to the people. The stories are written to be read out loud, to preserve the connection with the oral tradition in which these stories were originally transmitted in Indonesia.
