At last we have a book about Malaysia’s princesses. Malaysian children have been immersed for years in tales about foreign princesses such as Snow White and many others. Now they can read about their own princesses, all beautiful, brave and wise. Many of them were warriors and some fairy princesses with a wonderful story the equal of anything from Disney. Some are historical figures though their stories have surely been embellished over the years.
The first princess, Princess Gunung Ledang is perhaps the best known of all the fairy princesses as she is reputed to have made impossible demands of the Sultan Mansur Shah of Malacca when he proposed marriage. She lives even to today, at the top of Mount Ledang in Johor and is still as beautiful as ever.
