Synopsis

Kanchil, the beloved trickster mouse-deer of Indonesian folklore, falls into a pit. With only a banana leaf for company, he invents a prophecy to trick some unlikely animals into helping him out - so long as the world doesn't end first! And if anyone dares sneeze, the consequences will be dire...This sequel to the popular Mangoes and Bananas is illustrated in the Patachitra tradition of Orissa, eastern India, an intricate and colourful painting style which brings a cast of enchanting animals to life.
