1. ONCE UPON A MOONTIME: Four delightful tales from Arunachal Pradesh on how the world came to be–two brothers create the world; a river wanders over the mountain; the dove sings a lullaby; a wayward sun tries to scorch the earth.
2. THE SKY QUEEN: A superb retelling of another ageold classic folk tale from Arunachal Pradesh. The story of Nyanyi Myete, the legendary celestial queen from the Kojum-Koja civilization, who came out of the Great Deluge to give us the message of harmony in the natural world.
3. THE STORY OF SHANGMIYANG: Can you imagine a gentle, BIG giant who can sneeze up a storm? This Asomiya story is a visual delight for children, superbly illustrated by Suddhasattwa Basu.
