A richly illustrated, colourful comic book that brings alive the various moral tales from Ancient India that delights children of age group above 6 years.
Stories like the scrawny old tiger, the three large fish, the foolish lion, the talkative tortoise, the monkey and he crocodile etc are given a fresh perspective through these vivid and colourful illustrations that depict the stories in an almost humorous manner.
I loved the illustrations more than the stories. And the added dialogues that give a funny touch. Like the Elephant's keeper commenting on the grieving elephant... He is rather smelly.
Or the host of the animals drawn inside the lion's tummy to depict how much he had eaten.
