Bidasari and the Djinn - Ninot Aziz, Illustrated by Dani Warguide, Walid Muhammad, Shimo Manaf
The Epic of Bidasari, or Syair Bidasari, is a charming poem, set in a country called Inderapura (probably before the European adventures in Asia), that has all the ingredients of an enchanting fairy tale; a beautiful princess, an evil queen, sorcery, magic, a handsome king and with the ultimate happy ending. Like all such tales its origins were probably oral, and has existed in different versions throughout Southeast Asia.
