Written in a simple yet beautiful language these mythical tales from all over the world are riveting and compel the reader to imagine. These tales are by well known children’s writers Swapna Dutta and Ramendra Kumar, names quite familiar to readers of BoloKids.
Whether it is the matchless pearl the dragon and the phoenix are trying to find, the foolish old man who is attempting to create a path between two mountains, the land of eternal youth or the lake which saves a love, the stories have a certain kind of innocence in them and make for delightful reading. The specialty of these tales is that they are not the stereotypical mythical tales that we kids are used to but are from less known lands like Estonia, Melanesia and Scandinavia and unlike many myths and legends have a hidden moral tucked in them. It is quite evident that a lot of research has gone into weaving these stories.
These 24 tales not only serve the purpose of entertaining the readers but also help them in knowing about the varied cultures and traditions of the people in other parts of the world. The book priced at Rs. 80 and published by Unicorn books is a necessary buy.
