  • Description
    A fish saves the world. A horse flies across the sky. A king discovers that his beloved wife is actually a frog. Hindu mythology is full of tales in which animals play important roles. Some animals are looked upon with dread, while some are worshipped along with the gods. Some shape the fate of the world, others form everlasting bonds with humans. Where did the animals come from? From Vishnu's avatars or Shiva's asanas? How was a deer responsible for the events of the Ramayana? Why is Garuda the sworn enemy of the nagas? How did a mongoose teach Yudhishtira the true meaning of sacrifice? Devdutt Pattanaik answers all these questions and more in this exquisitely illustrated book, retelling numerous animal stories from ancient texts, with his trademark charm and wit.

    Worth it for your child

    The simple narration and beautifully illustrated book is definitely recommended to be a valuable addition to your child's collection. Even though some of the stories are popular and known to her, still my 11 year old daughter eagerly devoured it in less than an hour.

    Ideal for the young ones

    Devdutt Patnaik picks up many of those stories from mythology which have some specific animal as a character and delivers it to you in a simple, easy to read English format.
    At best, this book will serve as a great way of introduction to mythology for young ones, at worse, this will get a grown up interested in mythology and animal lores from mythology.
    Overall, this book is value for money.
    However, if you have the option to, buy a digital version since the paper quality is pretty bad consid...

    Nice

    Lovely children's book. Would buy it again. Bought it after reading Sita and Jaya by the same author. This is similar in style but adapted for younger audiences.

    Fabulous!

    The book came in great condition and pages are fine too. Illustrations and large fonts give the impression that it's meant for children but many stories will be unknown to adults too. It's a nice collection of all the tales about mythological creatures making it a good and easy read for adults as well.
