I did not dislike this book but was wishing for a more complete translation. The basics of the tale are here but it is more a book for children or young adults. This I think was who the author intended the book for but this really is not stated when buying. If you have a younger child or teen then YES this book does offer some good moral tales. If your a adult and you are trying to study the classic Hindu text then I would look elsewhere. As for the author I have read some other of Dharma's works and they are very westernized versions. They keep your interest and you get the basics but he tends to either condense to much or pine to western style of thought. These are recommended for those just beginning there insights.

I read this book as a young teen, and got this for my daughter. There are quite a lot of lessons of wisdom in this book. I'm not sure how much I like this particular translation/version of the panchatantra, but I do recommend these stories. My daughter is still a little young for them (she is 4), but I "edit" the parts I don't think she needs to hear (such as changing "ass" to "donkey") but she seems to like these stories already...

What a blessing it was to be able to read this book. In it I was able to make may references to areas in my own life like friendship and dignity. This book Is the first in depth book review I have ever done and that is because of the undying respect I will always have for it. God bless Krishna Dharma, and Vishnu Dharma, and all those that will open Hearts to the Divine, yet practical lessons within.

I was looking for a series of Amar Chitra classics that I remember reading when I was younger. And not being to find them anymore, I thought I'd try this book out.

The stories are similar to what I remember reading when I was young. But it is written in an irritating manner. You'll find one story encapsulating another story which encapsulates another story and then it folds backwards to finish the first story - many, many pages after it first began. And they do that again and again. So much so that it became burdensome to read this after a while.

What a pity, because the stories are nice. I just never remember it being told like this before. And with so many interjections of other stories inside stories. Still, given that it's hard to find nice stories of folklore from India, you might be hard pressed to find better books. But be warned about the irritating style in this book.
