Tales of India: Folk Tales from Bengal, Punjab, and Tamil Nadu (Hardcover)
A shape-shifting tiger and a pretentious rat.
A generous goddess and a powerful demon.
A clever princess and a prince who returns from the dead.
This collection of 16 traditional tales transports readers to the beguiling world of Indian folklore. Transcribed by Indian and English folklorists in the nineteenth century, these stories brim with wit and magic. Fans of fairy tales will encounter familiar favorites—epic quests and talking animals—alongside delightful surprises—an irreverent sense of humor and an array of bold, inspiring heroines. This special gift edition features an embossed, textured case and a ribbon marker, and each tale comes alive alongside exquisite artwork by a pair of contemporary Indian artists.
