Kids’ Club Review by Harshit Kumar: The sacred banana leaf : an Indonesian trickster tale

The sacred banana leaf : an Indonesian trickster tale / Scott, Nathan Kumar

I rated this book 5 stars because it tells that Kanchil was walking through the forest and eating rice cakes wrapped in a banana leaf when suddenly she fell into a pit. She tried to get out but she couldn’t so she came up with an idea. She tricked all Ular the snake, Babi the wild bear and Harimau the tiger by saying that it is going to be the end of the world and they came come in but they can’t sneeze. They jumped into the pit and waited till the end of the world but Kanchil sneezed and the other animals threw him out of the pit and then they got stuck in the pit and then Kanchil trotted away as fast as he could and went to look for more sweet rice cakes wrapped in a banana leaf.

5 stars
