Xieng Mieng stories

Xieng Mieng is the famous trickster and folk hero of Laos, who matches wits with the king and often wins – quite a risky proposition in Xieng Mieng's time, much safer today.

For generations, tales of his exploits have been passed along. Xieng Mieng is clever and bold, and if he's sometimes also a bit lazy, that doesn't seem to hurt him.

retold by Siphone Voutthisakdee, illustrated by Seng Xaysawan
