Dancing Devas Children’s Picture Book in Southeast Asia’s myths and art

Dancing Devas is a new book by author-illustrator Sophie Lizeray. The story brings to life the myths, art and architecture of Southeast Asia in a lively tale of magic and adventure.

When Vida chases her cheeky grasshopper friend Zazu out of her yard into the forest, they find themselves transported to the humid jungles of Southeast Asia. They stumble upon mysterious ruins when suddenly… SWISH! SHOVE! THUD! All around them, stone ruins and carvings start coming to life!

Will Vida and Zazu escape the fierce Giants and dodge the hissing mythical Serpents? How will they gatecrash the Apsara Fairy Queen’s rambunctious dance party?

Dancing Devas is a lively and whimsical adventure picture book, inspired by Southeast Asian myths, art and architecture. It tells the story of an intrepid young child who discovers the mythical Giants, Nagas and Apsaras from Southeast Asia’s legends and folklore.

Dancing Devas also includes an informational section with photographs, to get to know the different mythical characters encountered in the story.
