Singapore Children's Favorite Stories

For Ages: 5 - 4
Singapore Children's Favorite Stories is a collection of eleven well-loved myths and folktales from Singapore that provide an insight into the traditional culture and history of Singapore. Retold by Diane Taylor for an international audience, the whimsical watercolor illustrations by Lak-Khee Tay-Audouard offer insight into Singapore's multicultural past and present, as well as its colonial roots. The famous story of the tiger under the billiard table at the Raffles Hotel is retold, as is the myth of how the name "Singapore" (Lion City) came about. Magical princesses, mermaids, tigers, pirates and buffalos compete for every child's attention. The Children's Favorite Stories series was created to share the folktales and legends most beloved by children in the East with young readers of all backgrounds in the West. Singapore Children's Favorite Stories includes:
  • Queen of the Forest
  • Vanished!
  • The Pirates of Riau
