I really love the series because the idea of having a heroine as the main character of this book, despite the male dominance in Balinese culture. This second book successfully delivers a message that a book is worthy only when it is being read, not kept so neatly in a bookshelf. However, I don't think that the title really represents the content of the book, which tells mostly about the demons inside unread books, instead of how Luh Manik creates a mobile library.

Kekuatan cerita ini terletak pada pesan yang ingin disampaikan. Perhatian pembaca mengarah pada salah satu plot ketika buku menjadi murka saat ia tak dibaca bahkan tak disentuh sama sekali. Hal itu adalah sindiran halus bagi kaum takut baca. Majas personifikasi sangat jelas terlihat di sana, seandainya buku-buku usang di perpustakaan ataupun di toko buku bisa hidup, maka itu yang mereka lakukan. Mereka ingin mengingatkan bahwa, tidak ada ruginya membaca. Pesannya, berdarma pengetahuan lebih bijak dari pada berdarma harta.

As a young student, Luh Ayu Manik be a heroine in her life. She always helped everybody who are in trouble. She had a library which is named Room 21. There were so many books in that room. She would put any books she got into the bookshelves. The story told that the books in the library were seldom to be maintained. Many of the sacred books were damaged by the insects or gotten rid by the ashes. One day, the spirit of the books got angry because of that reasons. The spirit turned their selves into horrifying monsters. Those monsters made Luh Ayu Manik’s friends afraid. They were gripped with fear. Hence, even she had turned herself into a powerful heroine girl, she could not manage to control the demons. Only by the wisdom of talking to the spirit, asking for what was going wrong with them the it made the demons realized their anger. This also implicated that no matter how powerful you are; in some sort of condition it is more useful to learn about what the matter was. From this then we will have the better solution.

Luh Ayu Manik Mas story has brought a really well package of moral value for young generation. It stated about helping others, respecting people, and also spirits who coexists with us.

Cerita dalam buku Luh Ayu Manik versi “Ngae Perpustakaan Keliling” ini memang cerita fiksi yang menarik. Konflik yang diangkat sungguh unik dan memuat banyak pesan positif bagi pembacanya. Saya terhibur dengan adanya tokoh super hero wanita versi Bali. Suatu tema cerita fiksi yang masih jarang diangkat, namun akhirnya bisa memberikan suatu nostalgia bagi pembacanya yang sudah lama menginginkan suatu cerita kepahlawanan namun tetap mengandung budaya Bali yang kental.  Selain itu buku ini juga mengingatkan kita tentang pentingnya budaya membaca, di mana kegiatan ini sudah semakin terpinggirkan karena lebih asyik menonton televisi atau memainkan gawai.

Description

Video by: A.A. Ari Laksemi


In English

Without warning, a fierce wind sprang up in Room 21. The book that Luh Ayu Manik and her friends were reading shook and then flew about the room. And from the pages of the dirty, torn and tattered book, horrid demons appeared. Luh and her friends wanted to run away but they couldn't move ... they were like statues. I Wayan and I Made wanted to scream ... but their lips were sealed shut and they couldn't speak.

In Balinese

In Indonesian

Tiba-tiba angin berhembus kencang di kamar 21. Buku yang sedang dibaca Luh Ayu Manik dengan teman-temannya tiba-tiba bergetar dan terbang. Dari buku yang kotor, rusak, dan robek itu keluar raksasa-raksasa yang wajahnya seram. Semua hendak lari, tetapi hanya bisa diam tanpa bisa bergerak seperti patung. I Wayan dan I Made ingin berteriak keluar. Namun, bibir mereka terkatup tidak mampu bicara.

One Saturday, scary demons appeared from the books in Luh Ayu’s private library and said very important fact that has changed Ayu’s mind. Well, that is the bottom line of the second book of Luh Ayu Manik Mas’ series. I really love the series because the idea of having a heroine as the main character of this book, despite the male dominance in Balinese culture. This second book successfully delivers a message that a book is worthy only when it is being read, not kept so neatly in a bookshelf. However, I don't think that the title really represents the content of the book, which tells mostly about the demons inside unread books, instead of how Luh Manik creates a mobile library.
  • Review by: Gede Buddhi Jaya
The story of Luh Ayu Manik Mas; Making a Mobile Library, give us a lesson about the important of knowledge for young generation. One media can be used is by using books. The books that collected by Luh Ayu Manik were just kept in the bookshelves. The writer use personification to draw the book condition. Of course, it is effective for the children to understand about book condition.

To create the conflict, the writer use brilliant way, adopt the Bali condition as the heart of tourism object in Indonesia. Using foreigner get grabbed by the robber. As we know that, nowadays, Bali is not safe anymore. Many people across Bali come to this island and some of them does not have any skills. Language that use in this story is so simple. So the beginner reader can easily understand about the story and the pictures that presented in the book also can make the readers attract to read

So, the conclusion, this book can promote the beginner reader to know more about Bali problem, that is knowledge or education

Review Book2. Luh Ayu Manik creates mobile library.
      Luh Ayu Manik Mas is an heroic story which is written by Ari Wijayanthi. It is also a real life fiction whose main character Luh Ayu Manik is able to transform herself become Luh Ayu Manis Mas, the Superhero.

Luh Ayu Manik Mas is a kind girl who like to help people in trouble. Here, She chased the Snatcher who snatched a bag of the foreigner. Luh Ayu Manik transform herself become Luh Ayu Manik Mas to fight with the thief. Because of her supernatural powers, Luh Ayu Manik Mas was able to overcome the bag snatcher. And as a reward , the foreigner gave her a lovely book and she put it in the bookshelf around the library. One day, when Luh Ayu Manik and her friends were reading the book, suddenly, the strong wind swirled around her library and some demons appeared from the pages of the old and dirty books. They ran amok and yelled to Luh Ayu that everyone should read, clean, and pay attention towards those books. Luh Ayu Manik changed herself become luh Ayu Manik Mas and fought with the demons. He could round up all the demons and bundled them back into the books. Luh Ayu Manik agreed with the demons’ yell and took those books to Peken Anyar to create Mobile library using bicycle.

I think this book is good and highly suitable for teenage’ readers. This book also inspires the teenagers to read more books and persuades them to be useful young person because of her efforts to help others
