Publisher’s Note

Happy Birthday Puffin
Yes, it’s ten years of Puffin in India, and ten years of celebrating books and authors. Over the last decade, children’s books have been synonymous with puffin. Young readers have grown up with our titles, from classics to the contemporary. And we still have miles to go.

As a special treat to our lovely readers, we bring to your this unique collection of ten timeless folktales by ten of our very dear authors Ruskin Bond, Sudha Murty, Devdutt Pattanaik, Meera Uberoi, Shashi Deshpande, Paro Anand and others who have been part of the Puffin India Family all these years.

The Puffin book of Folktales is an assortment of delightful stories, some age old tales with a fresh twist, and other original offerings. While Musharraf Ali Farooqi and A.K. Ramanujan narrate humorous fables featuring the original angry birds, Paro Anand and Devdutt Pattanaik show us the human side of gods and great sages. Kamala Dass takes us into beautiful underwater world ruled by a sleepy fish king and a bored fish queen, and Meera Uberoi beings to life naughty little Ganesha’s antics. Poonam Athalye’s stunning illustrations add to the appeal of this book, making it truly a collector’s item.

So come, join the celebrations. These tales will leave you mesmerized with their magical charm.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
