A lovely collection of Indian myths and legends,
This review is from: Seasons of Splendour: Tales, Myths and Legends of India (Paperback)
I love India, and I also love myths, so this book was a really winner for me. I have always been a fan of the way that Madhur Jaffrey weaves personal anecdotes and cultural traditions into her cookbooks, so it was great to read a book of hers that was just about these things.
The stories are well told and easy to read. I think that young children would love to hear them at storytime, and older children will enjoy reading them on their own. And of course, older people (such as myself) who have an interest in India will also enjoy reading them, as they are not so childish as to have an age limit.
