“I’m the fastest animal in the forest!” boasts Kanchil the mouse deer. “And I challenge any animal to race me!” Who will step forward to accept this challenge, and can Kanchil be beaten? Featuring a well-known Indonesian trickster tale, this book is illustrated using the fine Mata-Ni-Pachedi style of ritual textile painting from Gujarat. Jagdish Chitara reworks the simple yet dramatic palette of his tradition–black, white and red colours – to create a world of splendid beasts.
