The stories have been passed down through generations and were told to author Pascal Khoo Thwe by his grandmother. The eight charming tales in the book feature handsome princes, squabbling siblings, greedy crocodiles, and evil ogres and are all set against a backdrop of traditional Burmese village life. The stories deal with universal values that parents everywhere want their children to learn, such as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, pride vs. humility, and wisdom vs. foolishness.
