Illustrated Stories from India A colourfully illustrated edition of traditional tales from India. There are thrilling stories of the Hindu gods such as Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesh and Lord Surya and their battles and feats of wisdom There are also wonderful tales of cunning and trickery amongst the animal kingdom such as Lord Moon in which a hare outwits an elephant that is causing trouble. The much loved stories of The Emperor Akbar the Great and his Advisor Birbal (a village boy plucked from obscurity when the Emperor is taken by his outspoken cleverness) are told in a sequence and are a welcome addition to the cannon of stories in which an underdog is seen to triumph using only his intelligence.
