So for World Book Day, Flipkart in collaboration with Penguin and UNESCO has come up with an exclusive book, The Puffin Book of Folktales


Ten timeless tales from India's finest writers. 

Explore an exciting and beautiful underwater world with Panna. Watch the little blue bird Podna fight a mighty king for his little brown Podni. Join Lord Ganesha on his quest for a pot of kheer. Read about lovelorn Lord Surya pining for his Harshringar, leaving the world in darkness. Help the dove get her egg back.

This is a motley treasury of ten-heart-warming folktales by master storytellers Ruskin Bond, Sudha Murty, Devdutt Pattanaik, Kamala Das, Paro Anand and many others, with each author adding their own special touch.

A delightful book, it brings to life India's glorious cultural heritage in all its richness, along with generous doses of fun. Truly, a collector's item!


I'm all excited to read this one and hopefully this summer vacation will be reading this out to the kids.

Check it out!
