Dainty Tales of Empire Lands : British Malaya 


HAE Roberts

A fairly cringe making, but amusing, attempt to educate British children about life in Malaya at the height of empire. The book begins with a story about Richard, who joins his father on a rubber plantation after a childhood in England because Malaya's climate is not 'good for a little white baby.' It continues with and adventure of Ahmat, a Sakai boy, and a folk tale. The book concludes with things to write about and things to do. The first task set is to answer the question, 'Why would you not like to live in British Malaya?'  Good Paperback. First Edition 31 pages with some colour and black and white line drawings.
