The Magic Urn and Other Timeless Tales of Malaysia brings together 12 legendary stories that have been passed down for generations. With a story from almost every state, the collection captures journeys of personal growth characters search for truths, find their calling, question faith, desire and temptation, and call on the powers of love, loss, memory, courage and wisdom.

Told in vivid detail and lavishly illustrated, the folktales transcend time and echo the motifs of good versus evil, nature versus nurture, and appearance versus reality.

Against backdrops of exotic royal palaces, lush rice fields, homely longhouses and verdant fruit orchards, the narratives stoke the fires of the imagination long after the last page.
