Product description

Have you heard about the elephant and the dog who became the best of friends? Or the traveller whose greed for gold lures him straight into the scrawny tiger’s trap? How about the talkative tortoise who can’t keep his mouth closed to save his life?

A magical collection of India’s best-loved animal folk tales, beautifully illustrated in Marcia Williams’ inviting comic-book style. Taken from the three ancient Indian books of folk tales – Hitopadesha Tales, Jataka Tales and Panchatantra Tales – these eight stories are bursting with humour and warmth. With their witty plots and brilliant pictures, they will delight animal-lovers while teaching valuable moral and social virtues through timeless fables.
