10 colorful stories adapted from the Panchatantra, an ancient collection of Sanskrit fables.

This book is beautiful inside and out, with a foiled cover and dust jacket, and vibrant illustrations. These animals of India include familiar faces like elephants and mice, and others like the jackal who are featured less commonly in western stories.

The print book also includes a link to access the audiobook free online!
Each of the stories has its own lesson, such as the importance of family bonds and not judging others based on appearances. The critical reader may note a lack of rhythm to the story structure, in that the morals might seem to come without being fully set up from the beginning of the story. But this doesn’t detract from colorful characters or themes.

Overall, these short stories are classic tales that will have you coming back again and again.
