The Panchatabtra is a rare book,for in no book will one find philosophy,psychology,politics,music,astronomy,human relationship etc.,all discussed together in such a simple and yet elegant style. The book is intended for the adult mind,though children will love it if helped:it contains a fountain of India's philosophical wisdom - a fountain of nectar. --G.L.Chandiramani/Translator16th

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the book has the entire collection of stories. The quality of translation and language used is superb as well. I would highly recommend it for kids anywhere in the world for its literary richness interlaced with cultural references here and there that give a nice cultural touch of ancient India.
It is very beautifully said and so easy to understand.
Thank You So Much :) I must say the Author has kept it very simple,easy to understand form.
What's that? Oh, it's a bunch of comic books with morals. Our comics in the states have long since
strayed to the more adventurous, exciting comics we see today which may or may not have a moral.
The kids looked forward to more comics. These comics that are the stories of relationship building,
deceit and the eventaul outcomes of friendships, treachery, honesty and deceit.
How did we do it when we grew up. Well, I guess we had Aesops Fables. But I never saw them in comic
This book is a subset of the textual versions of those morals. I hear that the comics are still available,
but there are about 2000 of them. I liked it. The storeis reminded me that some of the stuff you
hear may not always be honest. After all, people may have a reason for being dishonest at one time or
another. Eventually, they'll come around.
Thanks for the recommendation, Chandrika.
