Product description

In "The Little Book of Hindu Deities," Pixar animator Sanjay Patel brings to life Hinduism's most important gods and goddesses in fun, full-color illustrations, each accompanied by a short, lively profile. The stories of Hindu mythology cover everything from love and jealousy to petty grievances and epic battles, with characters ranging from monsters and demons to noble warriors and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant's head (his father cut it off!) and why Kali, the Goddess of Time, is known as "The Black One" (she's a bit goth).
