(This review is an excerpt from my blog: The Malaysian Reader)

Just as Noor Suraya wanted to introduce Hang Tuah’s story in a manner that would interest younger readers (see here), Hikayat is the result of ninotaziz’s wish to preserve and introduce classical Malay epics to today’s generation. Unlike Noor Suraya’s adaptation which is in Malay, the tales in Hikayat have been translated into English which from a marketing standpoint is just plain smart.

Umumnya, buku ini ditulis di dalam Bahasa Inggeris dan ditujukan untuk bacaan kanak-kanak / remaja. Buku ini sesuai untuk bacaan kanak-kanak yang sudah biasa dan terdedah dengan buku-buku berbahasa Inggeris. Kanak-kanak demikian, biasanya 'lemah' apabila diberi
