The Malay Tale of The Pig King
Usup Abdul Kadir & Heidi Shamsuddin
The Malay Tale of The Pig King was originally written by a merchant from Semarang (now Indonesia) in 1775 as Hikayat Raja Babi. The story begins when a royal couple is cursed to have a child who resembles a pig.
Aside from his unusual appearance, The Pig King is a cheeky but brave, strong and kind-hearted person. He goes on several thrilling adventures in order to prove himself -- and also to win the heart of his lady love. Will he succeed?
