Bilingual Comics: The Little Prince Feature

For book lovers and language lovers out there, you will be glad that Gramedia, Indonesia's largest publishing house, released a series of Bilingual Comics of our beloved childhood fairy tales and famous fictional characters. This set of series which currently has 10 different story books is published in English-Bahasa Indonesia Language. It also comes with a bonus CD for the audio version of the book

I consider this to be the best souvenir I can take with me from Jakarta. Who would not be in love with these books that will help Indonesian kids and language lovers understand the story of famed fictional characters in two languages, both in English and Bahasa Indonesia in one book.

There are total of 10 books published but it was quite difficult for me to find a whole set as it ran out of stock in most bookshops. Hopefully I can complete the whole set soon.

These are the books:

                           The Little Prince / Pangeran Kecil      Aladdin's Magic Lamp / Aladin dan Lampu Ajaib

                                                Cinderella                                 The Ugly Duckling / Itik Buruk Rupa

                                       Snow White / Putih Salju                                         Peter Pan

                           Hansel and Gretele / Hansel dan Gretel                        Pinocchio / Pinokio

Each book costs IDR 60,000 (USD 5)

The other two books not shown above are The Little Mermaid and Heidi.

I hope to complete it all soon.
