I'm a sucker for all things mythology. And the stories from the fabric of Hindu mythology are so rich and heavenly. The only problem being I know most of them already, having grown up listening to them. Her previous books in this series failed at that, in presenting stories that are not well known. But this book has some stories that are not so commonly heard. And for that I am grateful and thus the four stars. Well, as far as stories, they look like the rest of the Mahabharata stories.

I can see that these stories were aimed at a more younger audience, since the stories seem to have been edited / rephrased at times. Or maybe she wrote the stories which she heard and there is always some slight regional variation to these mythological stories, the local folk tales blending in to them. So, yeah, some of the stories were different to what I've known / read.

Also exquisite cover art and illustrations by Priyankar Gupta. Seems to be an incredibly talented artist. Honestly the covers make up 75% of the reason for me buying these books.

A must read if you like stories from Indian mythology.
