Seasons of Splendour: Tales, Myths and Legends of India,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seasons of Splendour: Tales, Myths and Legends of India (Paperback)
This book was a childhood favourite of mine, so it was great to find it again. It was the book that first sparked my fascination with Indian culture, and even ten years later I can still understand why.
It is written from an adult's perspective, but with all the enthusiasm of a child, and the stories are quite simply told yet still very engaging.
I imagine it would be perfect for bedtime or break-time stories, as it is laid out as one story per chapter.
Even though it is a children's book, the stories are told in such a friendly, enthusiastic tone that it doesn't feel in the least condescending, even reading it again as an adult.
