The Brownies in the Philippines
The Brownies in the Philippines was written by a Canadian named Palmer Cox and published by The Century Company, which was based in New York.
Brownies, like fairies and goblins are imaginary little sprites who are supposed to delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. They work and sport while weary households sleep, and never allow themselves to be seen by mortal eyes.
Cox uses the putative 'harmless' characters from Scottish mythology to portray Americans observing the Filipino people and attempts to bring the Philippines into the American consciousness by depicting in cartoon illustrations its traditions, values, and ways of life : The Brownies on Mindoro The Brownies on Palawan The Brownies on Mindanao The Brownies on Romblon The Brownies on Tawi Tawi The Brownies in Albay ...... and many other destinations.
