Khmerical: A Collection of Cambodian Folktales comprises three traditional stories that have been passed down for generations among families in Cambodia. In one story, a clever rabbit devises a sneaky plan to steal an old lady’s bananas without getting caught. Another story involves an ungrateful crocodile who is outsmarted by an old man and a rabbit. The third tale explains the reason why cows don’t have any top teeth and why tigers have stripes. All three folktales are not only lighthearted, but also hold the key to unlocking lessons of the past for future generations to come. The title Khmerical is a play on words of chimerical, which references mythological animals and captures the fantastical, imaginary, and visionary perspective of Khmer folktales.
