Seasons of Splendour : Tales, Myths and Legends of India by Madhur Jaffrey

 

India is particularly rich in colourful folklore. These stories, told by parents to their children for many generations, make a rich and dazzling collection of mythological tales drawn from a great heritage of Hindu epics - from the life of the great god Krishna to how the monkey god Hanuman helped defeat the Demon King Ravan and a host of other magical and spectacular creatures. The stories are arranged according to the sequence of the Hindu year and each is prefaced with a short personal anecdote from the author's childhood.

It is beautifully illustrated throughout in black line and tone by Michael Foreman.
