The Bookmark Inc. and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Philippines) partnered to produce A Sea of Stories, a collection of books written by Carla Pacis, which feature tales that showcases the rich culture of the Sulu Sea area and to highlight the importance of marine conservation.
This children’s book features five charming and sentimental stories (The Jin and the Turtle, Dragon Boat, Mapun, Grandmother's Gift and Manta Ray Journey) that speak of the people and the fascinating animals living in the islands of Sulu. The book is an effort to document and preserve some of the indigenous literary genres like legends, myths, and folktales, and create short stories for both the young and old from these raw, orally transmitted tales.
THE COLLECTION of A Sea of Stories written by Carla Pacis, published by The Bookmark, Inc. was launched last February 8, 2012, Wednesday, 5:00-8:00 pm at The Last Chukker, Manila Polo Club, McKinley Road, Forbes Park, Makati City.
The collection of stories was written for World Wild Fund’s SSME Programme with the goal to educate children on the beauty, fragility and importance of SSME seas. The books also aim to inspire adults to conserve and protect the rich coastal resources of the Philippines.
