Edited by Ruth Wan-Lau

Our Folktales: The All-time Favourite Folktales from Asia is a special collection of eight beloved tales from the countries featured in the Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) - China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, and Singapore.

The stories each country contributed reflect the diversity that is Asia, and the cohesiveness that is AFCC, both as a festival and as a platform for nurturing the traditional and evolving children's content across the region for children everywhere.

This abridged collection of tales will inspire readers of all ages to explore in greater depth these timeless folktales, as they traverse through mystical forests of imagination, oceans of wonder and awe, and lands beyond that feel close to home.
