Book Description from the Front Cover Flap

Filipino Children's Favorite Stories comprises a collection of well-loved myths and tales from the Philippines. Introducing Maga the giant crab, the god Langit and his beautiful wife Alunsina, Pedro the gentle woodcutter and a host of other intriguing characters, these stories will enchant six to ten-year-old readers from all over the world. Many of the tales have been told by mothers to children over the centuries and cover clasic childhood themes, such as the forces of good versus evil, children versus adults, the weak versus the strong, and others.

While some of the stories have been retold and printed in many variations, others have never been published before. Narrated with an international audience in mind and illustrated with whimsical watercolors by award-winning artist Joanne de Leon, this is a must-have book for children around the world.
