This is the story of how Ayu is chosen by the Prince of her village in Bali to dance the Legong dance.  It is the dance of the angry bird and is danced under the light of the full moon.  The dancers wear elaborate costumes and head dresses.  

This is a special story in our family as the girls' nana and siya spend winter in Bali each year.  They also love the beautiful drawings and lively tale.
