Step back into ancient India as Marcia Williams brings her inviting comic-book style to eight animal folktales that continue to enchant children today.

Have you heard about the elephant and the dog who became not just unlikely companions, but the best of friends? Or the traveler whose greed for gold lures him straight into the scrawny tiger's trap? How about the talkative tortoise who can't keep his mouth closed to save his life? Drawing from three books of best-loved Indian folktales -- Hitopadesha Tales, Jataka Tales, and Panchantra Tales -- this graphic storybook collection, alive with kid-friendly illustrations, is infused with humor and warmth.
