Dealer Notes
Garnier’s children's’ literature of olden kampong life seems valuable. She writes with the kind of bliss, that one could only expect from a woman who must have happily regaled in noisy bands of children.

Through this work of juvenile literature, Garnier painstakingly weaves the simple tale of a Malay family. The plot is made up of a little hero in Hussain, his dad called Mat, his mother Habibah and his baby brother, Sap. PADDYLANDS is an essential record marking an aspect of Malaya’s multi-layered cultural heritage. There are four colour plates… illustrations that feature groups of women heading for the shops, Hussain hurrying off to school, Habibah sitting enthusiastically on the doorstep awaiting the arrival of the men folk and a trip to market on the sampan.
