A Thai folktale in which a male and a female rice bird die, but meet again when they are reincarnated as a farmer and a princess.

All of the children in Thailand know the story of the two rice birds.  Whether told by a grandparent or learned in school, this memorable folktale passes ancient Thai beliefs and Buddhist traditions from one generation to the next.

The illustrations are based on authentic Thai murals and are beautifully colored and accented with gold.
