In this outstanding collection, Kirin Narayan's lovely, lilting voice immediately captivates listeners of all ages as she spins Hindu tales of inner wealth. A storyteller, writer, and anthropologist, Narayan skillfully adapts and playfully updates ancient stories of India to reach a modern audience--touching on universal themes such as the benefits of unselfish love and the danger of lusting after earthly riches. Narayan adeptly uses personal experiences to build connections with listeners and between tales. Even after listening once, children will be able to explain why the elephant-god Ganesh has only one tusk, why one shouldn't look at the moon on certain days, and lots more; however, the entire family will want to hear Narayan's stories again and again.
