The world of monkeys is full of entertaining tales
Brave or wily, quick thinking or unthinking each monkey in these tales offers a valuable lesson—a leader who risks his own life to save his band; another who outwits a demon; a third, whose presence of mind helps him fool a greedy crocodile; finally, an eager but foolish monkey who tries his hand at being the king’s gardener for a day.

The Jataka Tales are a treasure trove of 550 animal stories that have captivated the folklore of Asia. Well-known and beloved of generations of children, this collection of four stories from the Jataka, presented in a beautifully illustrated and designed edition, is bound to enchant your child and you.

Rohinton Mody has won several national and international awards for his work in advertising. His previous publications include The Adventures of Birbal.

Akhila Krishnan is a graphic designer and illustrator.
