Item description for Mangoes and Bananas by T. Balaji Nathan Kumar Scott...

Mangoes and Bananas tells the tale of Kanchil the mouse deer and Monyet the monkey-two friends who plant a garden together. But when the trees bear fruit, Monyet begins to eat everything himself. Kanchil has to act fast if he is to get anything at all.

Combining folk art with folk tale, this book reflects the warmth and richness of both traditions. The earth-toned illustrations-at once sophisticated and playful-are the result of a time-honored, all-natural process. This book will entertain anyone who seeks a quintessential folk story.

Born and raised in India, Nathan Kumar Scott is a Seattle-based storyteller. Scott has collected folk tales from around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mangoes and Bananas?

A clever and appealing cross-cultural storybook.  Sep 7, 2007
Mangoes & Bananas is a children's picturebook remarkably illustrated through the traditional art from of Kalamkari, originally developed on the southeastern coast of India in the 17th century. Kalamkari has been used to create beautiful designs on cloth for hundreds of years; Mangoes & Bananas is the first time Kalamkari art has been used to illustrate a book. The results bring to life simple figures and gently muted colors, giving a unique feel to the engaging story about a mouse deer and a monkey who are best friends. They grow a mango and a banana tree together, planning to share the fruit; but only the monkey can climb up high enough to pluck the fruit. In a moment of greed and weakness, the monkey eats all of the bananas; when it seems the monkey is about to succumb and devour the mangoes as well, the mouse deer must quickly come up with a clever plan to secure a fair share of the fruit! A clever and appealing cross-cultural storybook.
