About this product
- DescriptionRetold for an international audience, the beautifully illustrated legends in this book will give children an insight into both the traditional culture and the environment of Malaysia. The country's rich tropical scenery provides the perfect backdrop for these tales, many of which incorporate the indigeus plant and animal life into their story lines. Though the book is aimed at children in the five to twelve age group, readers young and old will find much to love within its pages.
- Author BiographyKay Lyons was born in Australia, but has lived half her life in Malaysia. She began her working career as a librarian before becoming a freelance editor and indexer of books on Malaysia. Malaysian Children's Favourite Stories is the first children's book she has written. Martin Loh is a self-taught Singaporean artist well-known for his unique style of Peranakan or naive art. His first exhibition Naive Images of Days Gone By in 1992 was a instant success. Martin's father is from Penang, Malaysia, and his naive depictions of everyday life, stemming from his own recollections as a Peranakan-influenced child, as well as memories of old houses and neighborhoods long gone, are widely sought after by local collectors and expatriates. Several of his works are to be found in the Singapore Art Museum.
