Tales from the Deep Forest: The Very Curious Adventures of Kancil the Mouse Deer
The Tales From The Deep Forest presented in this book were compiled in Singapore, but they have come from the entire South-East Asian Archipelago from Borneo to SUmatra, via the Malay Peninsula. Most of these tales, which date back to the era of La Fontaine and Moliére, represent in that part of the world what the Roman de Renart is to the French literary tradition: a great comedic novel where-led by the cheeky little mouse deer-the creatures who live in the deep forest take on human personalities, borrowing human emotions, double-dealing and weaknesses.
Translated and adapted originally into French by Georges Voisset, these classical texts are for the first time presented to the English-speaking public in a beautifully illustrated edition suitable for all readers, young or old.
