    A collection of four stories from master filmmaker and storyteller Satyajit Ray, The Magic Moonlight Flower and Other Enchanting Stories brings the magic of Ray's stories to English audiences everywhere.

    Summary of the Book

    Stories of ogres most macabre, princesses most pretty and flowers most enchanted, Satyajit Ray populates his world with characters which have become immortal in Indian storytelling. In one story, Sujan discovers his ability to imitate bird and animal calls, and decides to use his talents to defeat a terrible monster and win a princess's heart. In another, Ratan becomes an ogre following a nasty curse but his gift for song saves him from destruction. Full of colour and vitality one always finds in Ray's stories, this book tells the story of Gangaram, whose fate is changed by a beautiful rainbow coloured stone, and he gives it away, bringing a fate unknown upon himself. In the final story, a young boy's search to find a flower that will save his father's life leads him to a cruel king, and a terrifying serpent. These stories reflect Satyajit Ray's passion for short stories and showcase his talent as a stalwhart pillar of Indian literature.
