9780763670559: The Elephant's Friend and Other Tales from Ancient India

Step back into ancient India as Marcia Williams brings her inviting comic-book style to eight animal folktales that continue to enchant children today.

Have you heard about the elephant and the dog who became not just unlikely companions, but the best of friends? Or the traveler whose greed for gold lures him straight into the scrawny tiger's trap? How about the talkative tortoise who can't keep his mouth closed to save his life? Drawing from three books of best-loved Indian folktales — Hitopadesha Tales, Jataka Tales, and Panchantra Tales — this graphic storybook collection, alive with kid-friendly illustrations, is infused with humor and warmth.

Review:

Funny, wise, and entertaining from first page to last.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Whimsical, illustrated retellings of eight folktales... By breaking the plots down into comic booklike panels and relying on the symbols of sequential art, Williams makes these potentially unfamiliar tales accessible and fun for young readers... Matching the comic-book format, a sly thread of humor consistently runs through these tales... An enchanting addition to any folktale collection.
—School Library Journal

With beautiful, intricately detailed artwork in a playful comic-book style, Williams retells eight Indian animal folktales.
—Booklist

The illustrations, employing a vibrant, hot-pink-dominated palette, are rendered in gouache and ink; Indian-style patterns texture backgrounds and borders. Elements of visual humor are scattered throughout, and readers will enjoy seeking out the finer funny details.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A grand introduction to these venerable, entertaining stories.
—The Horn Book

The colorful comic book illustrations immediately engage the reader in Williams' retellings of favorite ancient Indian folktales...The vibrant jewel tones in the illustrations are reminiscent of the traditional Indian sari and pictures and page borders are playful and detailed.
