The 2nd Adventure of the Balinese Superhero

Without warning, a fierce wind sprang up in Room 21. The book that Luh Ayu Manik and her friends were reading shook and then flew about the room. And from the pages of the dirty, torn and tattered book, horrid demons appeared. Luh Ayu and her friends wanted to run away but they couldn't move ... they were like statues. I Wayan and I Made wanted to scream ... but their lips were sealed shut and they couldn't speak.

 

READ, LISTEN TO, or WRITE A BOOK REVIEW for the second exciting adventure of teen Balinese superhero, Luh Ayu Manik Mas.   

Luh Ayu Manik is created by a local team of writers, illustrators, and language advocates in consultation with local children via social media and on-the-ground workshops. You can speak directly to Luh Ayu Manik via Twitter @LuhAyuManikMas1 or Facebook@LuhAyuManikMas2019.

All Luh Ayu Manik Mas adventures are available in Balinese, Indonesian, and English and are available online free of charge.  Books may be downloaded without a charge as well.   

Thank you to all who are supporting Luh Ayu Manik Mas and her adventures!
