In this acclaimed retelling of a story from India’s ancient Bhagavata Purana, children emerge victorious over a serpent that haunts the landscape of childhood. When the eight-mile-long Agha monster threatens the pastoral life of young Krishna and his cowherd friends, the youngsters join forces. Not only do they defeat their serpentine foe but, in an act of empowerment and imagination, transform his gargantuan body into a playground. Brilliant colors, Seussian imagery, and lyrical text come together to create a satisfying adventure that nurtures the inner resources needed by young minds to cope with life’s difficult problems. This picture book achieves the rare balance of entertainment coupled with meaning, while rendering accessible a tale from one of the world’s oldest wisdom cultures.
