Description

A princess who thinks she was a bird, a coconut that cost a thousand rupees, and
a shepherd with a bag of words . . .

Kings and misers, princes and paupers, wise men and foolish boys, the funniest
and oddest men and women come alive in this sparkling new collection of stories.
The clever princess will only marry the man who can ask her a question she cannot
answer; the orphan boy outwits his greedy uncles with a bag of ash; and an old
couple in distress is saved by a magic drum.

Sudha Murty's grandparents told her some of these stories when she was
a child; others she heard from her friends from around the world. These delightful
and timeless folktales have been her favourites for years, and she has recounted
them many times over to the young people in her life. With this collection,
they will be enjoyed by many more readers, of all ages.
