Indian fairy tales

Indian Children's Favourite Stories
retold by Rosemarie Somaiah

A charming collection of Indian folk tales that provide insights into India's culture and history. The stories include that of Munna, who cleverly tricks the Raja into giving away his entire granary of rice; Raman, a mischievous village boy who becomes a king's jester; and foolish Guruswami, who sets out to find even more foolish people than himself. Accompanied by colourful drawings, these tales will be enjoyed by ages 5-8.
