1.GANESHA'S SWEET TOOTH The bold, bright colours of India leap right off the page in this fresh and funny picture book retelling (with a twist) of how Ganesha came to help write the epic poem of Hindu literature, the Mahabharata. Ganesha is just like any other kid, except that he has the head of an elephant and rides around on a magical mouse. And he loves sweets, especially the traditional Indian dessert, laddoo. But when Ganesha insists on biting into a super jumbo jawbreaker laddoo, his tusk breaks off! Ganesha is terribly upset, but with the help of the wise poet Vyasa, and his friend Mr. Mouse, he learns that what seems broken can actually be quite useful after all. With vibrant, graphic illustrations, expressive characters, and offbeat humour, this is a wonderfully inventive rendition of a classic tale.
2. LITTLE HANUMAN Did you know Lord Hanuman, the majestic Monkey God could do all sorts of amazing things even as a baby? Born with very special powers, he was strong, fearless, clever and...naughty! A charming tale about the early years of little Hanuman and his great adventures with Gaja the elephant, Khogu the rabbit, Tultul the hen and many others...
3. POWERFUL HANUMAN Gittoo's mama is back with another exciting story about the wise and strong Hanuman. Join the beloved monkey god and his army as they crisscross ancient lands in search of Sita, and learn about the power of friendship and courage.
4. SHIVA LOVES TO DANCE Did you know that when Lord Shiva dances, he creates a new and happy world? Join little Gittoo as he learns how mountains grow taller and rivers flow faster…and how even birds, animals and butterflies love the sound of Lord Shiva’s jingling feet and the beat of the damaru! When you dance, sing or play music, you too can create a special world of your own – here’s an enchanting story that will make you clap your hands with joy!
