The oldest GoldmineMy previledge to do so ... great people have written a review of this piece of book ... I read it when I was a kid... once again purchased a new one for my daughter , for I wanted her to have the scent of the book afresh. None other can complement this original volume of bengali fairy tales. Those who translates bengali literature and claims credit ... should jump at it and boast fully do so

The ultimate book of Bengali Fairy TalesThis is the ultimate book of fairy tales for any Bengali. The greatest of Bengali authors and novelists of different era themselves must have cherished this in their own childhood. The great Rabindranath Tagore himself has ushered praises for this book in it's foreword. The greatest part is, the look, feel, the pages and illustrations have not changed one bit. It remains the same as what it used to be 25 years ago when i last had it in my childhood. It's priceless for anyone who read it in his/her childhood. Flipkart delivery was great, got it on the next day of booking.

Being nostalgic about my summer holidays when I was a kid.This is one of those books I have read multiple times as kid during my summer holidays. I can remember when I was in 1st standard for the first time I got hold of this book. My parents used to read to me and sometimes half the way they used to stop to encourage me to start reading. I am really happy to get the book back once again.
