Nenek Tata and the Mangrove Menace

Nenek Tata is preparing for a normal day, gathering water, feeding her animals and checking the crab traps in the mangrove swamp before the first storm of the monsoon arrives. 

But it turns out to be a not-so-normal day, for there is something lurking in the jungle and, Nenek Tata may be forced to defend her home to the last ...

Set in Malaysia’s eastern-most state of Sabah, this delightful spooky story is influenced by the hantu stories told to the sisters, Jacqui and Judith, by their grandmother. By marrying the themes of Sabahan superstition and folktales with the unique memory of their grandmother’s wicked sense of humour, they have managed to create a fun and thrilling story that children will love.
