An ideal gift for children, this stunningly illustrated and elegantly produced large format book is a glorious celebration of the richness and diversity of Indian myths and folktales.

The gods and the demons come together to churn the ocean using the mountain Manthara and the serpent Vasuki to get the elixir of immortality.

Savitri tricks Death into doing something he has never done before. Emperor. Akbar challenges Birbal to find the ten biggest fools of Agra.

These and many other tales of boons and curses, love and betrayal, wit and humor, velour and pride, drawn from the ‘Mahabharata, Ramayana, Panchatantra’ and traditional folklore of India, are brought together in this fascinating collection. Meera Uberoi’s retelling brings to these stories a freshness and charm which will delight readers old and young.
