The world of Hindu mythology comes alive in these twelve enchanting tales of ancient India. Skillfully retold by a skilled Indian-born storyteller and poet, these stories bring to life a world of gods and goddesses, kings and queens, heroes and beggars, angelic beings and demons. As they explore this fabulous world, young readers will meet Ganesh, the beloved elephant-headed god; witness the fierce battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas; come face-to-face with Bali, a terrible demon; and meet Shiva, Krishna and many other Hindu gods.
Chatterjee infuses these classic tales, hundreds of years old, with style and energy. Finely detailed illustrations add to the wonder and charm of these stories--stories that are sure to capture the hearts and stir the imaginations of young readers.
