The Foolish Lion / Monkey and the Crocodile – Trickster Tales
Synopsis: In the 3rd Century BCE, Visnu Sarma wrote these two charming stories to teach wise conduct to these ignorant princes in the Panchatantra. Adapted by Shobha Viswanath and illustrated vibrantly by Mandar Kanvinde, these trickster tales are sure to win you with their unexpected endings.
The Foolish Lion: Budhu Raj the evil lion-king has all the animals under complete tyranny. Every day, an animal offers itself as food to the lion, until it’s time for Chatura, a crafty little hare.
Will Chatura escape the clutches of the evil Budhu Raj?
The Monkey and the Crocodile: Can anyone have more than one heart? Red Face the monkey seems to, as he outwits his ungrateful friend, Jagged Jaws the crocodile and his wicked wife.
