Red Onion, White Garlic

Two sisters, born years apart -- the daughters of want, and of plenty, travel through the trials, tribulations, and happy stories of their homeland, learning to compromise, understand and rejoice in each other, and eventually, to team together to succeed in their adventures. This beautiful tale tells the story of sisters learning to get along, and to find their own self-worth as they grow.

    Hansen deftly weaves beautiful tales into a tapestry of light and love and adventure and goodness. The tales are chock full of wit and magic. The characters are almost-good and almost-evil but not as black and white as the Grimm tales. It’s a pleasure to find strong female folklore tales plus it’s a grand introduction to the folklore of Indonesia.

    Interesting take on the old Indonesian standby "Bawang Merah Bawang Putih." There's some detailed language used here. Very good use of a character as narrator and there is a moral to the story. Recommended for anyone who wants to go outside the Eurozone for folklore. Cheers!
