20 tales from the Bengali region. Common themes are princes and princesses under spells of a rakshash (demon), quests for fantastic prizes, ghosts impersonating the living, talking animals and rebirth as flowers. An interesting similarility in some stories to western folktales. Fun and fascinating and peppered with peotry and Indian words (glossary at the end).
