The Sacred Banana Leaf: An Indonesian Trickster Tale

by

The Sacred Banana Leaf: An Indonesian Trickster Tale Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Born and raised in India, Colorado-based Nathan Kumar Scott is a collector of folktales from around the world.

Synopsis:

Beautiful traditional Patachitra artwork animates this mischievous tale, the sequel to the popular Mangoes and Bananas.

About the Author

Raised in India of American parents, Nathan has been bridging cultures all his life. A theatre director, designer, playwright, puppeteer and storyteller, his work has been performed in the US, Ecuador, Mexico, India, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Nathan is also the director of the SAGE (Studies Abroad for Global Education) foundation, which introduces Indian culture to students around the world. Radhashyam Raut trained in his community's traditional Patachitra style of temple mural art, and was awarded a national scholarship to continue his work. He enjoys adapting his tradition to new forms of storytelling - this is his second book after the exquisitely illustrated myth The Circle of Fate, also with Tara. He lives and works in a village in Orissa.
