       Additional Information  
     
      From the author of The Crossing of Times and A Little Book on the Mighty Fate comes a collection of fairytales that will enchant, mesmerize and make the entire family think about key issues facing the environment and society. Three culturally distinct fables blend cross-generational messages in The Pentagonal Mirror and Two Other Stories by Tan Lye Huat. Rewarding on so many levels, these rich, heartfelt stories bring keen observations and an elegant presence to a few stark realities, like social injustice and challenges to the environment. In one moment tender and the next bold, measure for measure, these stories pulse with energy, heart and integrity. A young Malay boy keeps the prime minister out of harm's way with the help of a mutant time machine, the adventures of a mild-mannered cat trigger a wild chain of events and, in the final fable, four magical mural paintings bring to life a group of warriors that save a small village from over-eager developers.
