Great book about local folktale.

This book teach us how to respect to elderly people especially someone related to us. We can see how rude the village chief blames elderly people as burden. When problem comes in, the village chief had no idea how to solve it. Then the boy's grandma, Opah who had been save, help him. Thanks to the Opah, she not only saved the village, but also teach the lesson to village chief how important to respect the elderly people. Conclusion, never rude to elderly people despite sometime they seem bother to us, but very useful when we need help.
