Panchatantra, India’s famous collection of fables has enthralled audiences for centuries. Full of humour, wit and wisdom, the tales combine artfully to convey basic life lessons. These fabulous stories, originally imported by a sage to three young princes, all illustrate that knowing how to use knowledge is more important than knowledge itself. The only non-scholarly version available, it is elegantly crafted and simple to read. Both younger readers and adults will enjoy this vivid retelling of Panchatantra.
