Inhaltsangabe: Demons, gods and holy men from indian myths and legends (world mythology series) book description
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up The mythology and principal legends of the Indian subcontinent are generously outlined here. Creation myths are covered first, followed by stories of the old gods (Indra, Agni, and Surya) and some of the greatest goddesses. Holy men who founded the various offshoots of Hinduism are presented, and separate chapters cover Shiv, Vishnu, Ram, and Krishna. There are sections on the Mahabharat and other legends as well. The oversize format and the double-column layout allow a great deal of information to be included. One noticeable omission is a pronunciation guide for the many unfamiliar names. Das' illustrations are well done; the full-color double-page spreads are striking. Smaller black line drawings help break up the large blocks of type. The stories from the myths are the primary attraction here, since they are not readily available in other collections of Indian folklore for children, most of which tend to draw heavily on the Jataka tales. Husain's telling is rather dry, however, and it is unlikely that children will persevere for more than a few pages. Teachers might find that reading a story or two from time to time in a unit on India might be a more fruitful use of the book. Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, Mass.
