The Ramayana for Children

The Ramayana is one of the best-known epics in the world. In this vividly told, brilliantly funny version for children, this ancient story takes on a new life. The traditional ingredients are all there, adventure and excitement, love, war and monkeys, shape-changing demons and monsters, crossing oceans and carrying mountains, and an infinite number of stories within stories, but it is rendered contemporary by the freshness and vitality of Bulbul's retelling, and by vivid and dramatic illustrations by K.P. Sudesh, one of the most compelling young artists of today. Hardcover. 198 pages.
