Rate this:

Mangoes and Bananas tells the tale of Kanchil the mouse deer and Monyet the monkey--two friends who plant a garden together. But when the trees bear fruit, Monyet begins to eat everything himself. Kanchil has to act fast if he is to get anything at all.

Combining folk art with folk tale, this book reflects the warmth and richness of both traditions. The earth-toned illustrations--at once sophisticated and playful--are the result of a time-honored, all-natural process. This book will entertain anyone who seeks a quintessential folk story.

Born and raised in India, Nathan Kumar Scott is a Seattle-based storyteller. Scott has collected folk tales from around the world.
