KIRKUS REVIEW

Fakirs, beautiful princesses, fantastic monkeys fill the pages of these sixteen tales from India. Translated from Indian classics, there is a richness of style and imagery here, typical of the Indian style, in an unusual blending of moving human emotion with delightful fantasy. Some of these stories find their counterpart in European literature, some are unfamiliar, but all partake of literary excellence and imaginative vigor.
