Once upon a time, Ni Diyah Tantri, the beautiful daughter of a chief minister to the king, is summoned to the royal chamber.

Balinese Children's Favorite Stories brings to life eleven of Ni Diyah Tantri's best-loved stories in a style which will appeal to children and adults alike.

In the same series as the popular Japanese Children's Favorite Stories and Filipino Children's Favorite Stories. Balinese Children's Favorite Stories is narrated with an international audience in mind and illustrated with whimsical watercolors by Trina Bohan-Tyrie.
