Booklist Reviews 2007 November #2

Part folklore, part cultural tour, this collection of eight folktales begins with a short, enthusiastic introduction to India's diverse history, people, and landscape. The stories have been drawn from distinct areas of India—from Punjab in the north to Tamil Nadu in the south. Prior to each story, a two-page description of the region provides a smattering of information on customs, clothing, traditions, and celebrations, some of which play a role in the tale that follows. No sources are given, but each story has the tight structure, a well-honed pace, and a distinctive, authentic folklore flavor. Bright, colorful, simple illustrations pick up story elements, frame the narrative, and parade throughout the pages. Filled with East Indian customs and flavors, magic and secrets, and brave and silly characters, this savory collection is well suited for independent reading, reading aloud, and multicultural studies.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring

With intensely colored gouache paintings that dance off the pages, this collection of stories from India entices readers to enter the worlds of the Hindu gods and goddesses, kings and queens, and the ordinary people who inhabit towns and villages. An introduction about India's history begins the book, and each tale is prefaced by information about the Indian state where it's from. Bib. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
