Actually you may take this book as a part of a series, according to me. The so-called series includes three books - The Man From The Egg: Unusual Tales About The Trinity, The Serpent's Revenge: Unusual Tales from the Mahabharata and The Upside-Down King: Unusual Tales about Rama and Krishna.
These three books can be read by anyone aged from 8 to 80. But, these books should not be used for research purpose as that needs more in-depth analysis.
The best part about the series is Murthy's writing. She doesn't make these books complex, hard-to-understand by including unnecessary informations. The flow of writing will give you the feeling - you're not reading some short articles, rather a complete book. The incidents of any of the book are interconnected.
Page quality is pretty good as usual as a Puffin book. Completely new books have been delivered.
If you love Mythology specially Indian Mythology, then go for these three books. You'll surely like it.
All the stories are well formulated and are different from each other . You many a times want to stop reading to sync with the revealation. My biggest one would be when I found out that Ravana was actually defeated by two warriors before Ram, yes you heard it right. Check many of these unheard stories out in this book.I recommend it to everyone who likes to read mythology and wants to discover what is hidden between the lines of Geeta,Ramayan , Mahabharata and many of our holy scriptures.
What I loved in the book?
The cover of the book.
The language is easy to grasp.
The choice of stories been written.

There are few stories which I got confused because , I had known from mom otherwise, also few other books told differently. Now am intrigued to read more about Ramayana related books.
The children will also like the stories, learn about the Indian culture and stories behind various characters like Harishchandra, Valmiki etc.
