The World’s Funniest Folktales
The World’s Funniest Folktales
Description
Back of the Book

A hilarious collection of folktales, guaranteed to leave you in stitches!

Meet Lars, who ends up hanging from the fireplace when he tries to keep house one day; Erik, whose wife is incapable of keeping a secret; Dala Tarwadi, the world’s laziest man with a fondness for brinjal curry and a host of other memorable characters in this collection.

Rajee Raman’s deft retelling gives a contemporary flavour to the traditional tales from eleven countries.

Preface

Who doesn’t enjoy a good story? Tales of dashing adventurers and cunning magicians; of wise men and their battles of wit; of knotty problems and their ingenious solutions…Stories are not merely entertainment, but a reflection of one’s culture and society. They are also a window to a magical land of imagination.

Some stories are timeless. The earliest stories date back to a time before the advent of the written word. These stories have survived the test of time to this day. They are fascinating examples of all that is universal in human nature, of values that transcend the boundaries of time and space. They continue to fascinate the children of today, as they have done children of other times and countries.

In this book, I have attempted to put together a collection of classic folktales from various cultures, which embody the wit and wisdom of the ages.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
