The Rainbow Troops

Meet bestselling author Andrea Hirata and immerse yourself in the adventures of a group of impoverished children on a remote island in Indonesia, who take centre stage in his brilliant debut novel Laskar Pelangi or The Rainbow Troops. 

This semi-autobiographical modern-day fairy tale tells of how two dedicated village teachers inspire a rag-tag clutch of elementary school children to get an education against all odds, touching readers worldwide and selling more than five million copies in over 100 countries to make Hirata the most successful writer of all time in Indonesia.
We hope you all can join us!
