The Malay Tale of the Pig King was originally written by a merchant from Semarang (now Indonesia) in 1775 as Hikayat Raja Babi. The story begins when a royal couple is cursed to have a child who resembles a pig.
Aside from his unusual appearance, The Pig King is a cheeky but brave, strong and kindhearted person. He goes on several thrilling adventures in order to prove himself — and also to win the heart of his lady love. Will he succeed?
