In support of Asian artists & storytellers.

Specially crafted children's stories and artwork by the finest native talent across the Asian region, produced by Me Books.

An Eastern Retelling of Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables, credited towards an ancient Greek storyteller, has survived through centuries and multiple adaptations, reinterpretations and artistic expressions.

Anchoring the core narrative, these noble values are meant to deliver lessons to their audience. 

 

As part of our homegrown project, local artists and authors had to reimagine and recreate these stories based on contemporary Asian culture. 

 

The environment and character base had to be designed accurately from an architectural, geographical, cultural or ecological perspective, in a manner that we are able to also introduce and teach about Asian cultures in the narrative, all while highlighting values that transcend time and space.
