Item description for The Sacred Banana Leaf by Nathan Kumar Scott...
Overview An adaptation of an Indonesian trickster tale about Kanchil the mouse deer.
Kanchil, the beloved trickster mouse-deer of Indonesian folklore, falls into a pit. With only a banana leaf for company, he invents a prophecy to trick some unlikely animals into helping him out—if the world doesn’t end first! And if anyone dares sneeze, the consequences will be dire.
This sequel to the popular Mangoes and Bananas is illustrated in the Patachitra tradition of Orissa, eastern India; it is an intricate and colorful painting style that brings a cast of enchanting animals to life.
