Synopsis

The Great Race by Nathan Kumar Scott

I'm the fastest animal in the forest! boasts Kanchil the mouse deer. And I challenge any animal to race me! Who will step forward to accept this challenge, and can Kanchil be beaten...? The Great Race is an exciting retelling of an Indonesian folktale, featuring the popular trickster Kanchil. Illustrated using the exquisite Mata Ni Pachedi style of ritual textile painting from Gujarat, this is the first time that this rare form of traditional art has been used to illustrate a children's book. This is the third story in our Kanchil series, which includes the bestselling Mangoes and Bananas and The Sacred Banana Leaf.
